I then covered one side of the foam in Mod Podge.
And stuck Aidan's picture to it. After that I trimmed any edges with my craft knife.
I did the same with the red foam.
I let them dry for a bit.
I picked out the hearts to use and used a white paint pen to sign Aidan's name to his cards.
and a black Sharpie for the white hearts.
Then I added the little silver ribbon that came in the kit and some of my own red polka dot ribbon to the hearts.
Then I took Mod Podge and covered the back of the hearts and glued them to the back side of the foam piece.
Then I let those dry for a while.
We added little heart stickers to the bottoms of the big heart and pencils Aidan had picked out that he wanted to give his friends.
And that's how easy that was! Adam asked me how much this little project cost and it was around $20. For 25 Valentine's? Not bad.
Aidan is so excited to go to school tomorrow and show off his cards. I think if anyone is proud of my crafty-ness it's him! He's so worth the late hours I stay up making them. Creating fun things like this for my kids is like a dream come true. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! XOXO
