Working on Valentines Gifts

Starting on my valentines gift…
I’m creating mini hearts and unicorns piñatas for the little ones. Stuffing them with stickers, toys, pin buttons and more. The heart piñatas have two openings 1) that can be broken in half or 2) the right corner lid opening.

I’ve also been making cupcake toppers:

  1. Lay the paper down on its decorative side, 2″x7”
  2. Fold accordion style:
  3. Glue each end to each other to create a circular fan.
  4. Punch a heart and glue in the center.
