I could not resist. A valentine fox made with strategically placed hearts. Eyes that melt, as long as you don't gaze too long and deeply into them to see a not-so-Pollyanna-ish motive under the surface. Nearly nine years ago, there was a fox that didn't bother to read the memo sent out regarding the invitation only guest list. He showed up unannounced at dusk that evening in July bent on causing trouble. Dick's long range aim with his .22 caused the fox to loosen its grip on one of my hens named Opal. Relatively unscathed but visibly shaken, she continued to live a long, though much more wary, life.
After cutting out the pieces to make yesterday's emoji valentines, I went to Michaels and purchased a 3/4" punch circle cutter for this fox valentine's eyes and an Elmer's Washable Clear Repositionable Glue Stick. Circles are difficult to cut freehand. Not impossible, but the punch circle cutter vs scissors... Go get the punch circle cutter. The instructions and PDF to make this fox valentine were created by Tammy over at Housing a Forest. Thanks for sharing your creative talent, Tammy!
