I’ve never really considered myself the, “Crafty Mom.’ I like to think of myself is the, “Creative Mom.”
What did I do to create these adorable sweet and simple Valentines?
Step 1. On the unlined side of a 3×5 index card, I wrote in Braille, “Happy Valentine’s Day,” on the top left, and, “Love, Marley,” on the bottom right.
Step 2. I measured, folded, and cut rid construction paper just big enough to glue behind the card, hiding the lined side of the card, and creating a red border around the white.
Step 3. Marley placed tactile bubble heart stickers on the top right of the index card.
Step 4. Marley glued the index card onto the red construction paper.
Step 5. With a hole puncher, I punched two holes on the bottom left and tied a red bow.
Step 6. Daddy wrote the same words in print on the back of the card.
I thought about glueing Hershey kisses onto the card, or taping a heart sucker to the back, but decided against adding any extra sugar since I knew she’d be coming home with a box full of sweets.
I shared the photo on Facebook yesterday. My mom called after seeing the photo and asked where I’d bought them from. She said they looked professionally done. I told her, “Nope, they were a Marley and me project. They were simple. They were easy. They were fun!”
