Coffee Filter Flowers & Butterflies Craft

Hello crafty friends!

I have a fun craft to share with you along with an educational activity. 

I shared videos showing how to make these lovely 

Be sure to hop over there to see how easy and fun they are.

I have literally made hundreds of these with students over the years.
They never seem to get tired of them.

I always tied it into the lessons on Spring and the Lifecycle of a butterfly.

Check out this teachable moment while crafting.

Hope you have fun crafting and learning with a special child in your life.
(I bet you will find that you have just as much fun as the kids do. LOL)

Cards with Heart(s)

Wow, sorry for not posting in so long. The good news is that I have felt better and been able to do more and go a few places. The bad news is that I have neglected my blog. I have been crafting though. It will take me a while to get caught up with all the pictures. That just means you all get to see lots of posts in the next few weeks. :)

So let me start with some cards that I planned to be for Valentine's but would still be good for several other occasions such as love, Mother's Day, or weddings.

All the cards were made using the Authentique Classique Pretty paper collection from Scrapadabadoo.

 Heart Card 1

Here is a breakdown of how I made this card.
You can download the pdf page here.

 Heart Card 2

Here is a video showing how this card was put together.

 Heart Card 3

Same idea, but the different papers give you such different looks.

Here is a video.

Well I hope you have enjoyed these cards.
There are 12 heart cards in all.
You can download all the measurements/instructions and templates.

I will be posting more videos during the week.
(after all, I really have to get caught up. LOL)
