Grocery Bag Valentine:
Super easy and fun to make for someone special
- Brown paper bag
- Hole punch
- Yarn or ribbon
Cut out a heart from the bag.
Make a fancy border.
Punch an even number of holes around the edge.
Thread yarn through holes, and tie a pretty bow.
Write a special message.
I am the daughter of the moon sparkling in the night blue sky.
I am a joyful butterfly swerving in the wind.
I am a splashing stream trickling through the mountains.
I am a smooth, smooth rock, cold as ice.
I am a tasty bluebuerry hanging on a bush.
I am a steaming fresh-baked brownie, warm and hot.
I am a Black Panther running swiftly in the sun.
I am the sky watching over people going back and forth.
I am the dream of a flying bird soaring in the sunset.
I am myself, thinking of thoughts!
