Woo hoo! Another series of Craft Lightening is here and I am sharing a fun recycled Valentine that my daughter and I made for my husband (hopefully he doesn’t see this post before Valentine’s Day)! This craft only takes fifteen minutes (or less) to make. Here is how we made our Paper Towel Roll Valentine Scroll.
- Two paper towel rolls
- Three sheets of scrap book paper
- Paper cutter
- Double sided tape (or glue)
- Computer (optional)
First cut two pieces of paper (in the same color) with a paper cutter in 8X11 pieces. These will cover the paper towel rolls at each end of the scroll. Cut a third piece of scrapbook paper in a size 11X12. This will be the center piece that the letter is on.
On both of your 8X11 pieces, place double sided tape (or glue) down the center to secure each paper towel roll.
Next tape one of the paper towel roll ends to the center piece as shown.
Fold it over and secure it with tape or glue.
Repeat on the other side.
Write your message on the blank side of your scroll. We typed it, printed it, and taped it inside with a boarder (optional). Our message said:
On this special Valentine’s Day,
There are a few things I want to say.
Even though I’m only three years old,
I know you love me more than gold.
And when push comes to shove,
You’ll always be my first love.
Because when I’m older and give life a whirl,
I’ll remember that I’ll always be your little girl.
Will you be my Valentine, Daddy?
You can roll it right up with the message inside…
…and the patterned part on the outside.
Lastly, add a pretty bow!
