Its nearly Valentines Day 2015, and I want to bring everyone's favorite wizard -Harry Potter- to you (or your kid's) classroom! Here's an easy way to make a Snitch valentine!
Step 1: Getting Your Items
This is a pretty easy craft, so this can be made with household items.
- 1: The base
The base can be made with many things. I used a circular 'box', but you can use pretty much any sphere. For making valentines, I suggest using lollypops. (P.S. You should try to find kind of big lollypops, dum-dums will not cut it but you can get Gourmet lolly-pops at Michael's and those are perfect for this kind of project)
- 2:The base décor
You should use gold foil for this, but regular silver foil will do (as seen here).
- 3: The wings
I use regular yellow construction for this, but if you want to spruce it up a bit you can use decorative paper.
Step 2: Step 1: Base
Cover ball with foil (be sure to cover all of it)
Step 3: Step 2: Wings
1: Fold paper in half
2: Draw a wing pattern (don't be afraid to spruce it up a bit with some curls)
3: Cut them out (you should have 2)
Step 4: Step 3: Putting It All Together
Use a dab of glue on the end of the wing a press it against the body for 10 seconds
Step 5: Finished!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial on a Snitch valentine. (P.S. Write a message on the wings! :)
