No paper doilies in your craft stash and not enough time (or energy) to go out and snag some? Scrumdillydo says that this craft is based on the "ever happy and popular coffee-filter butterfly"...so you could always use coffee filters instead! (you could use watercolors to color them)
This project is more suited for older kids that are ready to start learning how to sew.
The fun thing about both these projects is that they can be versatile and don't just have to be just for Valentine's Day. Change up the colors or leave out the smattering of hearts and you have just a regular ol' everyday kids' craft that you can use any time of the year!
