Inspiration from the Blogosphere....

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and I know people are looking for ideas of their kids' classmates.  Well, I came across this tutorial on the Lily Bee blog and I just had to share it here.

Mini Butterfly Valentines

Hey everyone, Cindy here with you today to share a how-to make cute little butterflies that dress up mini lollipops for your child's classmates. Several months ago, my little girl & I spent some time on Pinterest (I know, I can't get enough of that place) & we found these cute Butterfly Valentine project. Later that day, she created a few of her own. So of course, I got to thinking about her Valentine treats & decided to make a smaller version.

Punch a large 3/16" hole at bottom of die-cut hearts.

Match holes together while creating a butterfly form & adhere together.

Once dry, carefully slip mini lollipop through dual hearts. 

Use tiny glue dots to adhere stick to butterfly, pressing firmly. 

Use glue dots to adhere banner names in front & adorn with small googly eyes. 

Here I punched out smaller hearts with a "Love Corinne" note on the back of them.  

Pretty simple! You could even dress them up with twine or gems for fun or even buttons. But since these will be going to a bunch of 4 & 5 year olds, I though it would be best to keep it simple for their little hands. The best part is that I started these super early instead of waiting until the night before.
