Ok. So not to brag, but aren’t these the cutest Valentine’s Day cards/treats you have seen? My daughter and I made these for her to give to her friends at preschool and she is so excited about them.
She is 3, so in her mind; hearts, good; flowers, good; anything pink, good; lollypop, really good! You combine those together and it is pure magic!
She asks every day if she can take them to school with her. It is very hard to explain the concept of a week to a 3 year old…
So here you go! Your Valentine’s Day Flower Blossoms Tutorial!
Cut out all your shapes. Ok. I cheated. I don’t personally own a Cricut, but my mom does, so I enlisted her help with this. If you don’t have something like a Cricut, just start cutting! They are all easy shapes anyway.
For each Blossom you will need:
- 3 hearts (approx 2” in width and length) in any color
- 1-2 leaf shapes in green
- 1-2 center shapes (I used a smaller and a larger flower in yellow for my centers but get creative, circles work just fine too!)
Using your hands to hold everything in place, put 3 heart shapes together, folds all facing the same direction, holes aligned and tape them together on the back. (I am sure you could assemble these in a more pleasing manner, but mine are for 3 year olds! Tape on the back works perfectly!)
Add the leaf to the back (holes aligned) and tape.
Sign the flower / cards at this point. It is easier to do it now then wait until they are all assembled.
Assemble the rest of your shapes together on the lollypop! I took the lollypop, put the small center on, put the large center on, placed the heart / leaf shapes on and I used a little tape on the back to help hold it all on the lollypop!
Voila! You are all done! Pass out to all your friends or family and enjoy and extra lollypop (or two) for yourself!
