Valentine Flowers are great for the Valentine’s Day classroom Party. An easy DIY craft tutorial idea for paper flower candy valentines.
The last month has been spent browsing so many cute Valentines ideas and here it is just a day away and I still have nothing. I guess it is time to get my butt in gear and get them done. There is nothing like waiting until the last minute!
My first ideas was to make these Paper Flower Suckers.
But when I got to my store at 10 o’clock last night, they were completely out of Dum Dum suckers. FIGURES! Since it was so late, I didn’t want to go driving around town trying to find some. I improvised and we made these paper flower candy valentines instead.

How to Make Paper Flower Candy Valentines
Cut 3 flower shapes from the Flower Die.
Stack the flower shapes on top of each other and adhere with a glue dot.
Optional: Use a bone folder and carefully fold up the petals of the flower shapes. This gives the flower more dimension.
Apply a glue dot to the back of a single wrapped Lifesaver and stick in the center of the flower. Add the leaf to the back of the flower to complete.
The whole family got into making them, and we set it up assembly line style.
Here are a couple of the flowers that the kids made.
These valentine flowers turned out pretty cute for being sooo last-minute. This was such a great use for scraps and the kids had so much fun making them for their friends. When they were all done they simply turned the flower over and wrote the to and from on the back.
