victorian milagro hearts & radiating hearts

i make it my job to come up with crafts
for the holiday parties in ned's class.
it can be tricky to find projects that
work within that kind of chaos and energy,
but these two were perfect.
the kids loved them and were so proud
of their handmade valentines.

victorian milagro hearts
these are so simple and so old-fashioned.
they remind me of these

these were inspired by a package
of doilies i found at the thrift store.
i had to cut them so that there
would be enough for everyone,
and the shapes just came together.

just 4 pieces: a red paper heart,
a doily slice, a loop of ribbon, a little paper bag.
we just taped them together,
then slipped them into their semi-translucent bags.

i found the idea for these
radiating heart valentines
