It's time to go to Paper Craft Planet for our 3D Challenge! What's "green" and "red"? A reusable (that's the "green" part) Valentine's (the "red" part) hot drink sleeve!  Make this special Valentine's Day cozy for teachers, family, BFF, or yourself! You can make it out of whatever material you have handy in your craft supply -- like felt, cork sheet, foam sheet, lined fabric or heavy card stock!

Here's a quick tutorial on how I made this cozy with a Valentine's Day theme:

Cozy Template (PDF download here)
Felt - Red and White
Thread and Needle, Sewing Machine or Strong Glue

1. Cut template and trace onto Felt (adjust template if needed).
2. Cut hearts, line upper edge and attach. I ran a straight stitch using a sewing machine, but you can also use strong glue or fabric glue.
3. Attach ribbon to bottom edge.
4. Join sides together and add embellishments.

To change the look or color of the cup, trace cup onto card stock, cut and adhere sides together.

That's it! Now it's your turn to make this "green" Valentine's Day project. Please tag your photo 3d148 when uploading to PCP.
