Simple (and Fast) Valentine Envelopes

Today we had lots of fun making simple envelopes that we will use next week when we deliver our valentines.  Each child laid out paper doilies and various hearts that we found around our class on a piece of white construction paper.
  Next, they sprayed the paper with liquid watercolors.  The kids then carefully removed the items and voila…wonderful heart prints.  

The kid's paintings were prettier than my sample because they used more paint (although too much sometimes went right through the doily)
I then simply folded the paper in half and used colorful duck tape to tape up the sides. I've done this type of painting before using blue contractor's tape or contact paper.  Unfortunately, I can't find where I recently saw the idea to use doilies and hearts (but it's so pretty and much faster than tape:)


  1. These are awesome. I wish I'd seen it before I bought stickers and brown lunch bags. Saving it for next year!

    1. Thanks Kimberley. I love how they turned out.

  2. Wow! The envelop turned out beautiful!! I'm going to pin this to my Valentine board on Pinterest.

  3. Oops! Forgot the "e" at the end of envelope!

  4. Sweet! I'm sure they all turned out wonderfully.

  5. Those are so pretty! I'm going to look for liquid water colours. We don't have them at school.
