This is a project that kids of all ages can do with just a few supplies. Make watercolor hearts for your Valentine. You can include them in a card or on their own. They look beautiful in a vellum envelope. You can write messages or just send a handful of hearts. Simply paint a piece of watercolor paper with shades of pink and red or any colors you choose. The imperfections in painting is what makes the patterns in the hearts, so don’t worry about your technique. We’ve painted both sides of the paper. Once the paper is dry, use a heart punch and cut out your hearts. Each one is like a miniature abstract painting. Who wouldn’t love to open their Valentine and have a whole bunch of mini masterpieces fall out?
Note: It’s best to use watercolor paper because it is a little thicker and the texture of the paper adds to the look of each heart. The watercolor set I use for so many projects was less than $8 and I purchased it at Michaels.
