Pin it. Do it. Week 11.

This week's Pinterest project came about because of a challenge given to me by my bloggy and IRL friend Jenny, at A Drop in the Bucket.

Every week we challenge each other in some way, and last week she asked me to strut my inner perfect mama by making sweet notes for my kids.  Tomorrow I'll guest post on her blog about how that went over.

But today, I'm going to show you what I made.

 Cute, isn't it?  And easy, an essential criteria for me.

Here's what to do:

1. Trace your hand.  Don't make the mistake I did with the first one.  Trace just one hand, and use that one as a pattern for the other.  Otherwise the two hands won't match up when you make the sign.

2. Cut out.

3. Write message on a strip of paper and accordian fold.

4. Tape one side of message strip to each hand.

5. Done.

Great idea for a Valentine's note, don't you think?  Tune in tomorrow when I share how it went over with the Bigs.
