"Bee" Mine - Free Printable Valentine

 I've been brainstorming some Valentine ideas for my kids school and daycare an this was one I came up with.  I got the idea from the Butterfly Valentine that has been floating {get it? hardy har har} around the internet for a while now.  From that I thought, this sure would look cute as a bee, and that's where I took it.

To make your own:
Print off the double-sided (optional - second side is all blue) free printable bee template and cut out the bees.
Using an exacto knife, cut the slit marks.
Insert lollipop, starting in the back.
Add eyes and antennas* and give to your Valentine!

* I was out of black pipe cleaner so I used some wire and wood circles that I had.
Above shows how it would look if you used pipe cleaner - much easier and just as cute!

Plenty of space for your child to write the "to's" and "from's" and even a little note if wanted.
 
Won't you "bee" mine?
Happy Creating! ~Kim

    1. Just a tiny dab of hot glue. I put it on the antenna first and then placed that on the top of the lollipop.
