Valentine’;s Day is such a fun one for the kidlets. I remember being BEYOND excited to dump out my envelope of goodies. I couldn’;t wait to see what my classmates had “;mailed”; to me.

And can you imagine how you would have felt if a lollipop dressed up like a princess or a knight was waiting for you in your Valentine’;s pocket? Oh yeah. It would be that awesome.

And what better way to prolong the Valentine’;s excitement than to craft your own Valentines? I came up with these easy and super cute Princess and Knight lollipops and love how they turned out!

To make the Princess Lollipop Valentine:

Wrap the lollipop in two layers of white tissue paper. Attach it with a rubber band and trim the excess from the body (just so it’;s tighter to the lollipop stick).

Cut about ten pieces of yarn at about 3 inch lengths. Place a glue dot on the “;head”; of the lollipop and attach the yarn.

Using the diamond edge paper punch, punch a length of crown about two and a half inches long.

Cut the crown from the cardstock and attach it to the lollipop with a glue dot at the back of the Princess’;s head.

She’;s already becoming a little character!

Fold a piece of square cardstock so you have four triangles. Cut along the folds. Use one triangle for the Princess’;s body. Bring the points on the left and right of the triangle in to create the “;clothes”; for your Princess.

Using a glue dot on the lollipop stick and in between the two layers of cardstock, attach the princess’;s body.

Using a black marker (and maintain a gentle touch –; the tissue paper wants to absorb the marker!), paint on a happy little Princess face.

If you’;d like to add a bit of flair to the Princess’;s costume (I was inspired by the Queen of Hearts here)customized baby gifts, you can use the printable shield and heart embellishments. The Princess’;s hearts can be downloaded here.

You’;ll see that the knight also got his own fancy little shield.

This is how you create your own Lollipop Knight in Shining Armour:

Wrap the lollipop in silver tissue paper and secure with a rubber band.

Use the decorative stripes paper punch to punch out a line along a sheet of grey cardstock. Cut two inch and half long pieces and crease them at their centers.

After putting glue dots on either side of the lollipop, attach the Knight’;s face shield.?

“;Heya fella, slayed any Dragons lately?”;

And in the same way that the Princess’;s body was created, do the same for the knight, but out of grey cardstock.

Oh my, aren’;t they so cute already?

If you like the look of the heart and shield, download the two printable sheets for your own Valentines: Princess Hearts and Knight’;s Shield.

I printed them onto white cardstock and then cut them out by hand. With the quick placement of a glue dot, the Valentines are complete!

The backs of the Princess and Knight’;s capes can be personalized with a “;From”; or a greeting. They’;re now ready to be slipped into an envelope decorated in doilies and cutout hearts!

Valentines fit for a princess…; and a treat for a valiant knight!

This is a project you can tackle yourself, or you can easily get little hands involved as well.

(And watch out…; dragons are everywhere!)?

Hi, friends! ?I’m Amy, aka One Artsy Mama, and I’m thrilled to be here at Crafts Unleashed today to share a very special canvas art project with you! ?Our family absolutely loves Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. ?Ten years ago, hubby’s company sent him there for a work trip that we extended into a vacation, and we immediately fell in love. ?Since then, we’ve added our five year old “Little Crafter” to the family and he loves the beach just as much as we do. ?Each year, we look forward to our vacation there, and it’s a place that holds a lot of special memories for us. ?It’s where we all rode in a helicopter and parasailed for the first time. ?We’ve celebrated our anniversary, New Years, and my 30th birthday in Myrtle Beach. ?So, I thought it was only fitting to create a piece of canvas art decor for our home here in Maryland that would remind us of the other special place in our hearts.

Get into the spirit of Christmas with these present ideas that will give a little back. Here’s our ultimate guide to giving green and socially conscious gifts

Out here in the Northwest, we know our clouds. Just as they say the Eskimos have dozens of words to describe snow, I think we have just as many to describe clouds and the rain that often descends from them. Today, we've ignored those water-logged centers and chosen our favorite fluffy white clouds... the ones you found shapes in as a child, lying on your back in the summer grass. "There's a chariot pulled by four white horses!" "I see a tumbling bear!" "Look, an ice cream cone!" Our clouds are made of super-soft Minky Eyelash on the front and pure cool silver cotton on the back... a silver lining, I guess. We provide our own cloud drawing as a guide, but feel free to make one in the shape of a tumbling bear.
