Val’s Quick Craft: Scratch Art Valentines

February 3, 2013 at 9:00 am 3 comments

This week, our Blog Ambassador Val (Inner Child Fun) shared an adorable craft to help celebrate Valentine’s Day! We love it because, of all the arts and crafts available for Valentine’s Day, this one truly is quick and easy!

Arts and Crafts Project for Valentine's Day

Here’s a quick overview of her Scratch Art Valentines:

1)      Gather up the materials you need. She recommends Scratch Arts sheets (she used ones from the Scratch & Sparkle Deluxe Kit), cookie cutters (heart-shaped, of course!), tape, pencils, scissors, and doilies (if you have them).

2)      Trace your adorable shapes and start the Scratch Art fun! Scribble and decorate designs into your hearts however you’d like!

3)      Attach your doily and punch a hole for some ribbon to string through. Then, hang the adorable ornaments around your home, or share them as gifts!
