Looking for a simple yet pretty Valentine’s Day Card Craft for your children? Check out this fun candy holder card my kids and I created!
Thanks to Oriental Trading I was sent items to create a fun Valentine’s Day Craft with my kids. Personally, I have shopped their website in the past for items like ornaments, goody bag gifts, and party supplies, and have been pleased with the products I received. I actually got favors for one of my oldest son’s birthday events, and Oriental Trading helped me put the finishing touches on the party theme.
Just like my previous experiences, I was really happy with merchandise. Having all these supplies on hand was really nice because it made crafting EASY for my kids, but still allowed them to use their creativity.
My family was able to assemble Valentine’s Day Cards for school, and also spend some quality time together. Not to mention, we now have plenty of hearts left over to use in other crafts or to make more Valentine’s Day Cards next year.
In order to create our Valentine’s Day Card With Candy Holder Craft, we used:
Flat Heart Lollipops
(I happen to already have the glue sticks on hand, and bought the lollipops at the Dollar Store.)
To assemble our cards, first we put a little paste on the bottom of a doily and centered it on the Valentine. We then chose a large heart for the center. For some reason the conversation hearts did not want to stick to doilies, so we added a little paste. Next, we placed 2 small hearts on each side of the doily to create a pocket.
After the cards were finished, I instructed the kids to set them aside for the paste to dry. I also told them to leave the placement of the lollipop up to me.
I then put the stem of the lollipop off-center through one of the larger holes in the side of doily. This was right below the edge of the large center foam heart.
I pushed the paper down with my thumb nail as the stem went through. The material is thin so you will need to be careful as you guide it into the doily. Once the lollipops were added to the card, they slide easily into the furnished envelopes.
What kinds of homemade Valentine’s Day Cards have your children made for school? Have you bought items from Oriental Trading company in the past?
I hope you and your family enjoy this craft as well!
