bee mine valentine

Here’s a simply sweet idea: a simple paper heart coupled with a lollipop flower. This idea is quick and easy enough to repeat for every kid in the class, yet clever enough to be unique. The secret to these lollipops? Cover them with tissue paper and floral tape. I designed this project for The Spotted Canary, so pop over there to find the full project instructions: [how to make a lollipop heart valentine]

You can find green floral tape in the flower section of the dollar store, or use colored masking tape (also called “washi tape”) for a different twist. I love this project because it is very basic, but you can dress it up with your favorite stickers. I am always looking for a good use for my sticker collection!
