I received the idea for this from a bubblews writer Happymum. She posted a lovely step by step tutorial in a simple paper cutting craft, so it was easy to do it with my daughters today.
Earlier I had mentioned the craft to my husband and he made the girls a snowflake. They enjoyed it big time and later in the day I did my attempt at making a circle of cut out hearts. I think it came out okay for our first try. We will definitely be making more of them tomorrow.
Olivia was so focused when she was painting it in with her sister. It took her a lot longer to paint this in than her usual hearts.
