Paper Heart mice

Today has been yet another day of valentines day crafts. We’ve still got so many left to share that im hoping ill get chance to post them all before valentines! We started off today with these paper heart mice and how cute did they turn out? These make a great alternative to traditional valentines as there is space to write your own special message on the back of them!

You will need

Coloured Paper
Googly eyes
Pom Pom
Yarn
Glue
Scissors

First you will need to make the body of your mouse. To do this cut out a circle from your coloured paper. We find the easiest way to get a perfect circle is to draw round a mug or some tape. Once you have your circle, cut one straight line in to the centre of it as shown above.

Now bring one side over the top of the other to create a round pyramid shape and secure it with tape or glue

Next, cut out a heart for your mouse’s face. Stick it onto the cone by gluing over your join line up to the point as you can see above. You may need to pull the edges of your heart forwards a bit to position the face better.

Cut and stick two small hearts for the ears and give your little mouse two googly eyes

Measure and cut a few equal lengths of yarn. Glue them at the bottom point of your heart to create whiskers and then glue a pom pom on top for the nose.

To finish off your mouse you need to make a cute curly tail! Cut a thin strip of paper. Take one end and roll it up to the other to create a spiral, loosen ot slightly then glue the outer end to the back of your mouse.

Your mouse is finished! How adorable does he look?
