Blow My Heart Up - Bubble Gum Valentine Craft

 To make this bubba-licious Blow My Heart Up bubble gum craft, you only need a few very simple materials that can all be found at your craft store:

Red Craft Foam (or pre-cut foam hearts from the dollar store!)
Gum Balls
Plastic Baggies
Glue Gun

Blow My Heart Up - Bubble Gum Valentine Craft

Cut a heart shape out of your red craft foam.
Cut out the same heart shape but this time make a frame by cutting out the center of it
(easy peasy if you use an exacto knife).
Place your gum balls on the heart
Cut a plastic baggie in half and place it over the gum balls
Hot glue the baggie to the back of the foam red heart
Cut the edges of the baggie around the heart off
Place the red frame foam heart on top and hot glue that baby down!


Here is your free printable
(drag it to your desktop, double click, hit file then print, and POW, it’s done!)
