My secret Valentine



Do you have a secret Valentine? Someone you really like and would like to send them a Valentine's gift? Make up a pencil topper and leave it on his or her desk. They will spend the whole day wondering who sent it!


You will need:

Craft foam or thick, coloured card
Bright pipe cleaners
Gel or glitter pens

Here's how:


1. Cut a 5 centimetre heart from craft foam or coloured card. With a gel or glitter pen, print a short message on the front. You could include your name on the back, or leave it a secret!

2. Now poke a pipe cleaner through the bottom of the heart, bend it down, and twist it back around the remaining length of pipe cleaner.

3. Coil the pipe cleaner tightly around the pencil. Then gently pull up on the heart so that part of the coil bobs freely above the pencil, with several loops anchored around the eraser end.
