Here is the butterfly, thanks to my Cricut. (I am so glad I didn't have to cut out 64 by hand.)
Here are a couple with the suckers.
I thought they were pretty cute as is and I hummed and hawwed debating on eyes or no eyes, stickers or no stickers. I got these stickers at Target for a buck each in the dollar bin. Now, lets see 64 x 4 = aw, heck I am not doing math in the dollar bin at Target, get 5 the kids can play with the rest.
I then said 'yes' to eyeballs.
I ran through the store and picked them up. It was a quick run in and out. Lucky me, Michael's is on the way to and from the kids school, we drive right past it. The debate then was 6mm or 7mm, I went with 7. I am not sure everyone would put as much thought into the size of the eyeballs as I did, I am still not sure if I picked the right ones, but, I just had to make a decision. So, do I want the smaller ones with the smaller iris part of the eye, or did I want a bigger surface to work with for the glue. I know, I know, I over think things, but I like efficiency more than anything I can think of at this moment. So, I went with the larger gluing surface.
So, here is the finished product.
And here is what 64 of them look like.
Then I saw these bookmarks and I wanted to make those too. The bookmarks were easy, I already had a big stash of Red Paper and Animal Pattern Paper. I didn't want to do toy animals (pricey - I did make 64 of these), so I went with the foam animal and heart stickers. (From Micheal's I paid $8.00 for all of them put together.) The kids helped me put a lot of the animal stickers on. Then instead of the animal Valentine sayings, I wanted to kinda put the 'love' of reading into this craft. I just used my Elegant Edges Cartridge made 64 little phrase cut outs. Then and I planned to run them through my Xyron machine. I must say I love this thing. I did not get it from Amazon, I got it from Michael's with either a 40% or 50% off coupon and I have had it for awhile now. (Always wait for your coupons before buying refill carts.) But, then I decided to lower the cost and just use glue. Here is the finished product. I think they are pretty cute and that they will get used and not just tossed or lost with other chachki type junk that I may otherwise send. That and I am sure they have a million pencils and erasers from us by now.
