Kids already have Mom's heart pretty well sewn up, but there's no sense taking chances, and this whimsical notepad leaves no doubt as to who holds the strings.
|Prep Time: Under 1 hour|
|What you need:|
|Seasons: Valentine's day|
|Materials: paper, yarn|
|1.||Cut out a red paper heart (ours is about 6 inches across). Trace and cut out 10 to 20 more from white paper. Stack up the hearts in bunches of five, folding each bunch down the middle.|
|2.||Using a tapestry needle, poke holes every 1/2 inch down the center folds (young kids will need Dad's help with this step).|
|3.||Stack the hearts together with the cover on top.|
|4.||Thread the needle with yarn, knot one end, then sew it through the holes, knotting it at the other end.|
|5.||Decorate the cover and seal with a kiss.
