Valentine's Day Already?

I know it happens every year, but I was completely unprepared for Valentine's Day this time. Last week I kind of acknowledged that I should start preparing things when the V-Day class lists came home from school. However it wasn't until yesterday morning when my youngest son asked me what he was handing out that I really started to panic. Thank God for all of the crafty people out there who graciously share their creative ideas on the net! I did a quick search and stumbled upon an adorable idea for a V-Day card here.

So, here is my attempt at what I'm calling a Cupid Ninja Tootsie Pop Card.
I used the following materials - Tootsie Pops, white tissue paper, tape and red raffia ribbon.


I found a free image of a flying ninja on the internet and printed it on cardstock paper (I modified the image to remove the head). I then folded the paper in half and punched a 3/4" hole along the crease where the head would be...


Finally I printed out some eyes on label paper and put the whole ninja together. Here's the result...


Oh wait, did I mention that I started constructing these at 9pm last night and that I had to make 40 of them? And yes, it took forever!

I hope you were more prepared for this day than I was. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

I love the ninja valentine. I know this post is more than a year old but I would love to know where you found the ninja image. It's so hard to find free images these days.
