Superhero Valentines: It's all that sweet stuff in disguise, so even the littlest guys will like it!
In the second edition of Valentines for Boys, it will be nephew #2's turn. See Valentines for Boys: Part 1 for more ideas. Nephew #2 was just as excited to pick out his own design and quickly selected the Superhero Valentines inspired by those at Zakka Life.
Supplies: 30 tootsie pops (I used the Valentine's Day themed), cardstock in a variety of colors, tape or glue dots, glue stick, scissors, hole punch
I had to modify their design because I was out of color ink, so I created a black and white template. You can download it here. Print the template on any colored cardstock you desire.
To make the superhero emblem on the cape, out came the Silhouette. I found a Superhero design in their store and used the LD Blankie font. The Superhero design was two pieces, so I decided to only use the inner piece. For instructions on how to print and cut, check out the tutorial on the Silhouette FAQ page.
It would also be easy to make these with a printer and cardstock and then cut a design my hand.
To assemble: Cut the shapes from the template by hand. Then punch a hole in the top of the capes with the hole punch. Attach your superhero emblem using the glue stick. The cape slides on to the stick of the tootsie pop and shouldn't need anything to secure it - the wrapper helps it stay in place. Then attach the mask with a glue dot or piece of tape.
Perfect for any little boy!
