Do your kids already have their Valentine’s cards picked out? Where has the month of January gone?
I saw the above Valentines card yesterday and just fell in love. (Swedish Fish might have had something to do with it. Yummy!) The sharks are backed by clothespins for a fully functional Jaws effect. They are sure to inspire toothy grins from the classmates.
Shark Valentines Card Directions:
- Start by drawing the shark’s top and bottom halves as shown or tracing the shark template (Feb 2015 issue) on glitter card stock.
- Cut out the halves, then apply tacky glue along one side of a clothespin and adhere them
- Place the shark on waxed paper to dry
- When the glue is dry, slightly bend one tail section forward so that when the mouth opens, the tail parts smoothly pass one another
- Glue on a sequin eye
- Cut a paper heart (pinking shears to trim a “bite” is optional)
- write your message
- glue the heart to a treat

Okay I have seen so many cute and fun valentine’s day card ideas, but these are the best yet, love the glitter cards used to make these, and the sequin eye, and the bag of fish, so adorable.
You have the best ideas. These are awesome.
