This Valentine’s Day, show your love by getting crafty with your little one!
What you need:
- Cardstock paper in white, pink, & red
- Black ink
- Rub-on numbers
- Scrapbook glue or other adhesive
- Frame (optional)
Step 1: Trace the outside of the hands with a pencil. I really only needed to trace one hand, cut it out, flip it over and trace it the cut-out template to have 2 hands cut out. This is key when trying to keep a busy toddler still while tracing tiny fingers.

Step 2: Ink the edges of all the hand cut-outs. Once both hands are inked, glue both hands together to make a heart shape.
Step 3: Adhere the heart-hands onto the page. I tried to layer them slightly so that they both fit onto the 8 x 10 white cardstock. Place rub-ons anywhere you like. I put “2011” to date how tiny my daughter’s hands were this year.
Step 4 (Optional): Place artwork inside a frame. Voila! Two hands, two hearts, one very special project.
