For Caden being in 2nd Grade I could still do something fun for him and not have to be more grown up like Cole's. I found these fun Super Hero Valentines on The Dairy of Dave's Wife. Now she is awesome sewed them and all, I'm usually running around like my head is cut off so I went with the glue method. Her's also looked a lot cleaner but when you have to make 30 of them your's tend not to be as clean .. lol.
What You Need:
Felt (I bought a package at Dollar Tree)
Craft Glue or Sewing Machine
Print out the free template she has for the mask. I printed and then took a sharpie to outline on the felt. The felt I bought at the Dollar Tree was thinner then the kind I've bought before at the craft store. But I also knew that most of the kids would not keep them so I didn't want to spend a ton of money. If I was doing a super hero party I would use the thick felt.
Once I had the out line on the felt I cut out the felt mask. The Dollar Tree sheet allowed me to fold over and make 2 shapes per sheet which would make one mask. I glued the felt together with craft glue. I added the strap by tying it on to two holes I made using my hole punch. She sewed her's into the side of the mask. She also made a free printable that could hang on to the mask as the valentine card!
The cutting is the longest part of this job!
Any Valentine gift Ideas you have planned?
