Finished Paper Valentine Flower

 

 

On the heels of Valentine's Day, we just happened to be at Kaleidoscope, a local kids' craft haven. There are several craft centers. The blacklight station tends to be one of my favorites, but this year, we stumbled on a fun craft idea: the paper flower Valentine. The paper flower craft is easy to make.
