This project is a combination of two great projects I found on fantastic crafty sites:
The idea on how to turn a heart into an envelope was demonstrated on Craftside!
The second great project “Send a hug” was shown by the “Roots & Wings Co” Sisters.
Here is how we did it:
Cut out a heart shape to your liking. Outline it on the paper that will become your heart envelope. Draw your portrait. Not the fun part: Outline your arms and hands. Get help from a friend!!! 🙂 Glue everything on to the heart envelope and fold the heart together as shown on on the template by Craftside.
Off the hug goes to the post office and to someone you love.
We did this project as part of Hattifant’s Crafty Afternoon at St. Andrews International School. Some of the children wanted to send a Pumpkin Hug, others a normal giant envelope. Others again had a very interesting view of themselves. Hence we had a few scary hugs! 😉 Why, well, it was the day right after Halloween!
