Samantha & Nellie are ready to celebrate wearing their pretty Valentine Crowns! The crowns are very fun to make and I've created a free pattern for you to use too. Let's get crafting!
1. After you Print out the pattern, use it to cut hearts from the pink and red cardstock. You will need three red and three pink. Cut twelve inches of white cardstock to be the crown band. (I bought a full sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock for scrapbooking to make it easier) The thickness of the band should be 3/8 or 1/2 of an inch. 2. With the help of a parent/guardian, use an X-Acto knife to make two small slits in the middle of the paper heart. (I always use a piece of cardboard to protect my surface). I made the length of the slits a little wider than the band. You could also fold the heart and use scissors to make the slits. 3. Thread the hearts onto the band. 4. When all of the hearts are on it, bend to make the crown shape and secure the two ends with tape. And, you're done!!

If you save & print directly from your browser, it might not print at the right size. (I also included a smaller size for WellieWishers or if you want your crown to have small hearts!)
Now, your doll has a beautiful crown to wear!!
They would be great to make for a doll party! And, they aren't only for Valentine's Day--use different cardstock colors for other fun looks! :)
