When I saw this post by Carla over at small + friendly pop into my reader, I knew what project Griff and I were doing for the week. This cute tutorial includes everything you need to make adorable valentines for the birds. Luckily, all I needed was bird seed.
This is a great recipe for the kidlets. Griff was able to do all of it himself. He is able to tell me the difference between the cups these days. I love that.
It gets a bit sticky once it’s all mixed together, so Mom had to help a bit.
Once we transferred to wax paper, cut out our hearts, and added the holes for the string, we were ready to go (we doubled the recipe!)
Carla included a fantastic PDF on her site for the tags to use on the top of the valentines. I printed them out on pink card stock and cut them out while the cookies were cooking.
While the cookies were cooling, I created the envelopes following her tutorial. Once cooled, we added festive pink yarn and inserted them into the envelopes.
Once secured on each side with a staple, the perfect little valentines are ready to go! How cute are these?
