Butterflies and Superheros

My daughter likes to make her Valentine's each year for classmates and teachers. She has done sticker collages and fuzzy monsters in the past. I have been collecting Valentine ideas on Pinterest so we went to look for what she wanted and she selected Superheros and Butterflies, two fun ones and we created our own from those ideas. I am sure you have seen these if searching for ideas.
For our butterflies, I choose to create my own rather than use the cute printable found at Skip to My Lou. I cut the butterflies off the Paisley cartridge and chopped off their heads and antennae so our Tootsie Pops would fit.
Sophie stamped on all the small circles we cut using George and Basic shapes. She used a bunch of hearts and xoxo stamps from Pink By Design and My Creative Time. She was a mess when she was done, but it was fun. After signing her name to the back, she glued all the dots onto the wings and we pushed the treats into the slits.
For the superheros we stayed pretty true to the patterns. I cut the cape shapes off the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge and chopped off the top edge.
Then I printed out the fun printable we found at Less Ordinary Designs. Sophie helped me cut the circles using a Creative Memories circle cutter.
She will finishing gluing on all the cape designs on today, but we have 2 to show off already. She is super excited to pass these out at school on Thursday! I just love helping her with them each fun to share craft time. Happy weekend to all!
