Heart-Stamped Valentines

Yes, you can make a pretty Valentines using an empty toilet paper roll!We turned ours into stamps to make these pretty heart note cards.

We’ve explored cardboard roll stamping before and had a lot of fun, so I knew the girls would love making these Valentines.

 

Supplies Needed:
Empty cardboard tubes
Card stock
Red and pink paint
In order to prep for this projects, I squished and folded my cardboard tubes until they looked like a heart. To keep the point at the bottom, I found it helpful to staple the point near the middle of the tube.
Once our stamps were ready, I gave each girl a piece of white card stock and poured a bit of paint onto a couple of plastic lids.The girls got to work stamping. They took their work very seriously!

When we were done, we had a couple of very pretty heart pictures.But, as pretty as they were, they were destined to be note cards. I cut each piece of card stock in half and then folded each in half.

Now we’ve got four pretty Valentines ready to go!

This is a simple art project that is easy enough for a toddler and fun enough that your older kids will enjoy it. It’s a fun one for a multi-aged group.
