This is a total copy-cat craft. Melissa from The Chocolate Muffin Tree made these the other day, and I thought they looked super-cute.
Last year, I made some homemade stamps for Valentines by carving up some styrofoam blocks, so I pulled those out today, along with another heart stamp that we have. I offered some paint dabbers as well, as little ones love to use these.
I opened up a few paper bags so the Hooligans could stamp all over them. I had red paint in one tray and white in another, and I encouraged the kids to mix the colours when they were dipping their stampers. It made for some really pretty prints.
Then we used wool to “sew” the 2 hearts together, and left a good size opening at the top to stuff them. We used shredded paper for this. I have some parents with paper shredders so I’ve accumulated quite a big bag of it. This was the first time we’d used it. It’s awesome stuff for crafts like this.
