Octopus Valentine Box...

My 2nd grade son's Valentine box is done and we took it to school this morning. If you can't tell from the pics, it's an octopus wearing a beret. The blue paint was a gallon of OOPS paint that I picked up at the hardware store and it just happened to be the perfect match for the dot fabric that I bought for Mason! We papermached the head and then I sewed the tentacles and attached them to an embroidery hoop and then glued the head to it.

The Valentines can then be stuffed in his mouth.
And here is Mason enjoying his birthday cupcake cake. He actually kept his birthday crown on the whole time which was amazing because he likes to pull his winter hats right off.
Have a terrific day,
