Project #153: Spec-tacular Valentine’s Day glasses
As I prepared for Valentine’s Day this year I knew I wanted to come up with a craft that was fun but didn’t include chocolate or sweets. Now that both of my children are at school (and knowing they would want to make gifts for their classmates) I also wanted a craft they could make on their own – or with minimal assistance. My Spec-tacular Valentine’s Day glasses fit the bill and were inspired by my four year old who just loves wearing sunglasses.
What you’ll need:
*Spec-tacular Valentine Printable (link: http://littlelovely.typepad.com/littlelovely/2014/02/free-spec-tacular-valentines-day-craft-printable.html)
Cut out the Spec-tacular Valentine’s Day cover, glasses and glasses arms.
Optional Step 2:
Add glue to the glasses frame and decorate with glitter. Set aside to dry.
Secure arms to the back of the glasses frame with glue. This can be achieved by folding over a section of the arm (about the width of the glasses frame) and gluing. Set aside to dry. Note: You may want to staple or cellotape the arms of the glasses if you think the recipient may be heavy-handed.
Step 4: Fold the cover along the lines as shown. Apply glue to the cover flaps and secure. Set aside to dry.
Step 5: When your items are dry, place glasses inside cover and give to your Valentine.
Happy Valentine’s everyone!
