I’m really excited to welcome Kayla from Say Not Sweet Anne as our new printables contributor! She is uber talented, has a super cute blog and will be giving us all sorts of cute stuff to print! This first one is super cute, my kids are going to love it! Join me in welcoming Kayla to the cute team!
Oh my goodness, I can’t believe I’m here!
Hello everyone, my name is Kayla and this is my first post as super-duper-official printable contributor for Making the Word Cuter!! I’ve been thinking of this since Tiffany asked me to be a contributor. What shall I say? What will I post? Will they like me? Can I give my segment a name? What about “Pretty Paper?”… It’s like a first day at my new job, and you all are my co-workers!
Well, I certainly hope you enjoy what I have for you today. You see, this Valentine’s Day, I’ve been working on some great printable projects that don’t involve candy. I mean, I’ve got plenty that DO involve candy – don’t get me wrong! There’s the Just because Candy Bar Wrapper, Conversation Hearts Bingo, and Strawberry covered Chocolate cupcakes… just to name a few.
But sometimes, a girl can get candied-out. (Did I just say that!?) And I wanted to make sure you all had some activities that you could do without the sticky sweet stuff.
Valentine’s Day Cupid Dice
This little project hearkens from those childhood games of “he loves me, he loves me not.” The cupid die (the singular of Dice is Die. But, I didn’t want to name the post “Cupid Die” so, we’ll pretend its plural.) works sort of like an 8 ball. Ask it a question an it will give you an answer! Anything from “does he love me?” to “should I have ice cream for dinner?” you ask, the die will answer! Printing and assembling this sort of cube is the basis for a lot of my printables, so it seemed like a good first project. (You can see this familiar shape in my countdown calendars for one.) Its straight forward and pretty easy. I hear its a hoot in a classroom!
What You Need:
- Heavy card stock
- The Free Printable Cupid Dice
How to make it:
- Download the template.
- Print the template on heavy card stock.
- Using scissors or a craft knife, cut out the template.
Use a butterknife, a paperclip, or some other dull but precise instrument so score along the lines of the template. I use a paperclip and a ruler. You’re doing this to crush the paper fibers where you will be folding, making an easier and more precise fold.
- Fold the template as pictured, and glue or tape the corners together. I like to use double sided tape.
- Tuck the top and bottom flaps in, and tape or glue to secure.
