Flirty words are always better when you know you are being heard! To be sure your sweetheart hears your quiet words of love this Valentines Day, make a mini megaphone just for whispering sweet nothings. Simply print out your template, cut out the mini mega phone shape, glue along the dotted flap, bend out your finger handle, and find a friend or a lover to say something sweet to.

Is any one able to open and print the template? I can’t get it to open… :(

Emily, it opened and printed just fine for me. Good luck, ‘cuz this is so cute.


So cute! This takes me back to my Asics cheer shoes and high curly pigtails tied with ribbon – thanks d*sponge and halligan!

yay! halli!!! I can’t wait to see what other adorable projects your crafty brain cooks up!


Halli!! Petey and I are looking at this cutie post together right now. I love seeing your pretty face in the photo!! Let’s hang out soon…


The template doesn’t come up any more. I really would like to use this. Its so cute!



the template is still working it- i just tested it on a few browsers. it’s rather large, so make sure you give it about 30-45 seconds to show up. also, make sure you’re using the latest version of firefox, chrome, safari, or opera. IE doesn’t always play well with d*s.



Thanks for sharing the megaphone template, I was looking for something easy for a preschool craft to celebrate New Year’s Day. I love that it’s mini, it’ll be just right!
