Handmade Valentines for Kids: Cupcake Goodies
This Valentine's Day, encourage kids to show sweet sentiments with tokens of affection that go beyond the store-bought card. Fill flattened cupcake liners with candy for a treat you won't have to bake. The liners' pleats nicely frame scrap-art pictures or paper hearts (we used scalloping scissors to trim some). A craft punch or paper flowers can make cute borders.
- Flattened cupcake liners
- Scalloping scissors
- Craft punch or paper flowers (optional)
- Ribbons, or paper or fabric flowers
- Construction paper
Flatten two paper cupcake liners. Place one liner face up, and lay the other face down on top of it.
Lift the edge, and apply glue along a short section. Press to attach; let dry. Continue gluing in sections, leaving the last section open. Fill with candy; seal opening with glue.
Cut out heart or other shape from construction paper; add cut-out images, ribbons, or paper or fabric flowers, and write or stamp a note. Glue onto center.
