Can you believe all those amazing heart ideas (see below). I’m sure there is a little something for everyone in all of these heart projects. Mine might be more for the kids (or the kids at heart). I came up with this idea while watching my niece. She is obsessed with minions. Except she calls them minis and always wants to watch them. She just cracks up laughing. I knew this project passed the test when she called it a minion and wouldn’t give it back.

I love that it looks like a minion, but it didn’t have to be super complicated. I love that it is just the eye and a smile that make it work. It is a perfect valentine project for the kids. Get them tracing circles and cutting them out and gluing. Or use a hole punch and a small circle punch to make it easier. They will love these minions, I promise!

I even got the “You’re one in a Minion,” idea from my cute nieces minion shirt. She basically inspired this whole project.

  1. My little guy is looking over my shoulder and I asked him if he’d like to give these out to his preschool class for Valentines Day… he said, “No, I’d like to them out to ME!” Ha ha 🙂 Too cute, Emily- you rock!

  2. You know I think this is adorable! And I’m humming again. We just watched Despicable Me over Christmas and my son LOVES the minions, especially the mini-movies. Well, I haven’t bought Twinkies in ages, but may have to go look them up again! Super clever Emily, well done!

  3. My son is over the moon excited about his “evil minion” valentine box…these will make the perfect valentines to give to his friends! But seriously- are there twinkies to be bought?
