Here is a Valentine project for a child to make. Most schools let the children make cards; but, no one ever pushes the children to make something for their mom at this time. So here is a project for them to do. This is also, a good upcycle project.
Materials: Cardboard, pencil, scissors, glue, picture, and gold raffia
Draw and cut out a heart shaped piece of cardboard to make the frame.
NOTE: You can make your frame big or small depending on the size of your photo.
In the inside of your heart, draw and cut out a smaller heart that is big enough for your photo.
Be sure the important part of your photo is visible in the heart shape.
Wind the gold raffia around the frame, going from outside of the frame in through the middle and then around the outside again.
Cover the e completely. Secure ends of the raffia on the back of the frame with glue.
Place the frame on another piece of cardboard, and trace its outline.
Cut the outline out just inside the line, to make the back a little smaller than the front.
Now use the raffia heart as a guide for placement. Glue photo to the backing heart.
Glue the backing to the back of the raffia frame.
Take a piece of cardboard to make a stand for the frame to stand up .
Glue to the back of the frame.
