Valentine Balloon Heart Craft
This adorable Valentine craft was inspired by one of our group members – Danielle R. She shared a version like this made with circle paper roll stamps. She also made a Valentine version that used fingerprints to make the heart and then LOVE spelt underneath using a child’s picture for the O.

Directions For How To Make A Paper Roll Balloon Valentine
1. First, take a picture of your child pretending to hold a balloon.
You can print the picture off from your computer using photo paper. You can also print on white cardstock.
2. Glue the picture to a piece of white cardstock.
3. Take a paper roll and fold it into the shape of a heart. Once folded, it should stay in place. If you find the paper roll starting to unbend you can use an elastic to keep it in place.
4. Stamp the paper roll into red or pink acrylic paint and then stamp onto your white cardstock to make heart shapes. You can also use fingerprints to make fingerprint hearts, heart stickers or draw your own heart balloons.
5. Add enough to make it look like a bunch of balloons.
6. Using an ultra fine point sharpie or black pen, draw lines from the heart balloons to the hand.
We also added a little mark underneath the heart to make the heart look like a balloon.
You do not need to draw a line for every balloon. For some of the top ones you can just draw a little line down to the next balloon.
