Easy DIY Watercolor Valentine Cards

Thrifty Thursday:

I love today’s thrifty project because not only does it have to do with watercolor  {ehmm look around we might be biased towards watercolors a tad} but it also takes me back to Elementary school days of arts and crafts. Who doesn’t want to bust out some good old crayola crayons?? Time to make some oh so cute Valentines cards!! This is a great kid project too- kinda a fun magic show when your crayon art appears….watch and see!

Supplies:

  • Watercolor paper
  • Watercolors & Paintbrush
  • White Crayon
  • Pencil
  • Paper cutter or scissors
