Valentine's Day Craft!

I am not really into Valentine's Day at all but since Elliott came along I feel I need to give Daddy an extra special card from his boy.

Last year I gave him a bought card from both Elliott and I, but this year I thought I would make our own. I have seen this idea floating around Pinterest so thought I would give it a go, and the result is a super cute memory which will look beautiful sitting on the mantelpiece!

It was so simple to do too and took a little under 5 minutes to do which is great when your toddler has the attention span of a goldfish! 

I had some spare card in our craft box so used that. Ideally I would have liked to use white card but we don't have any! I think a trip to Hobbycraft is on the cards this weekend... see what I did there?!

Armed with a packet of crisps (to keep little hands amused), some red paint, baby wipes and a paint brush I got to work. 

I found angled the card much easier to get the footprints in a V shape. With a red sharpie I wrote a L and an O on one side and an E on the other.  I added You underneath it as I felt the feet were floating on the card and I think it makes more cuter! 

With our personalised message inside the cutest Valentines card is done! 

What do you think of our personalised Valentines Card? Have you made your own?

  1. I love this. I was never brave enough to do much in the way of painting bits of the kids, if you know what I mean, to make creative artwork, but it's such a lovely idea. Thank you for sharing. This would be great for other times in the year, as well. Sorry for delay in commenting. The link up tool totally failed on me and I didn't see your post.
