Materials Printable Heart heart Creating materials We always find these items helpful too: Smock Craft tray Directions Print and cut out the provided heart. Don your smock. Glue, paint, stamp- we’d love to see what you come up with! Here are a few examples of what we did with our heart templates: A) Collage We tore various types of paper- maps, coffee sleeves, envelopes, corrugated paper and all sorts of speciality paper. Once tip we have when it comes to fancy/decorative paper is to go to wedding invitation places or speciality paper stores. They may sell bags of their off cuts or donate them to you if you mention that you work with children. The different textures are a delight for the kids to work with. I would often set up a table of the papers for the kids to make their own cards with these papers, different types of pens, punches etc. We then cut the strips on the heart. Flip over your heart and trim the edges. Give your heart to a special friend with an inscription on the back. B) Shaving Cream Marbling Here is how the process works: http://make-it-your-own.com/back-to-school-personalize-your-notebook-with-marbling/ C) Dip Your Heart in Paint, Bubbles, Salt on Watercolours & Splatter Painting What will you come up with?
