Our Blog Ambassador Valerie shared an adorable craft over on Inner Child Fun, to help celebrate Valentine’s Day! We love it because, of all the arts and crafts available for Valentine’s Day, this one truly is quick and easy… Scratch Art Valentines!

Val's Quick Craft Scratch Art Valentines

Here’s a quick overview of her Scratch Art Valentines:

  1. Gather up the materials you need. Valerie recommends Scratch Art sheets (she used ones from the Scratch & Sparkle Kit), cookie cutters (heart-shaped, of course!), tape, pencils, scissors, and doilies (if you have them).
  2. Trace your adorable shapes and start the Scratch Art fun! Scribble and decorate designs or special messages into your diy hearts, however you’d like!
  3. Attach your doily and punch a hole for some ribbon to string through. Then, hang the adorable Valentine ornaments around your home, or share them as gifts!
