Blast from the Past - Valentine Cootie Catcher

Does anyone else remember making these cootie catchers at school?!? I remember how I thought they were the coolest thing. Courtney here with a blast from the past project. :) 
It was funny because my husband was googling the instructions and he told me step one and I remembered the rest! Then I said the phrase "it's all coming back to me now" - and then I broke out into Celine Dion's "It's all coming back to me now"... wow. Aren't you glad you started reading this post!?! haha. It's stuck in your head now isn't it? Okay, moving on. 

This is made from one sheet of 12x12 paper in the Sweethearts collection. I embellished with some pixies, stickers, alphas, a couple of papers from the 6x6 pad, more stickers, and a little twine. 

I know, I know - you are supposed to put colors on the outside of it, but I thought this was more fun. :) 

What is under the numbers you ask!?! It's for my husband... you don't get to know ;) 

This would be a super fun little activity to do with your kids or a way to reward them for getting their chores done or homework done or something like that. You could put rewards/activities underneath the numbers! :)

I hope you enjoyed this post and have a beautiful day!
