It has been a while since we have done anything crafty and with Valentine’s just around the corner today we decided to have a go at some homemade wrapping paper and Valentine’s card.
Supplies for this are very simple so great if you are on a budget.
- Brown paper
- Red paint
- Toilet roll tube
- White card
- Googley eyes
For the wrapping paper we simply squished our toilet roll tube a bit to make a slightly wonky heart shape, dipped in the paint and stamped away. The other paint pots came in handy for holding the paper flat.
For the card we decided to go with just the one heart and, as no craft in this house is ever complete without some googley eyes, we added these to make into a little love-bug.
Cheap, simple and toddler friendly too. Crafty-crafty eh?

That’s a lovely little craft idea for the smalls! I wonder if Vee wants to do something like this?
Love this! Tom is sticking goggly eyes on everything in sight at the moment, so I might see if I can persuade him to do this with me and put them to slightly better use! xx
Very cute! Simple and sweet!
