Usually, you don’t see a sloth venturing too far, or too fast, away from their favorite perch with their arms wrapped around a tree limb. This Valentine’s Day, though, their arms are hanging on tight to your heart.

Cut out the traced patterns nicely.

brown eye patches glued

Grab the brown eye patch cutouts and the white round shape. Attach the 2 eye patches on both sides of the round shape, keeping the curved ends facing inside. Use scissors to trim the extra sides of the eye patches and align them with the round shape’s border.

face drawn with black pen

Attach the round shape in the middle of the head pattern. Use a fine-tip sharpie or black pen to draw the eyes, nose and mouth of the sloth.

sloth legs glued

Grab the body pattern and the 2 leg patterns. Stick the leg patterns beside the leg parts attached to the body pattern, only gluing the open end overlapped with the body pattern and keeping the rest of the leg free.

sloth body

Attach 1 leg beside each attached to the body pattern. This is the backside of the paper-craft.

sloth head glued to body

Flip the body pattern to the front side and attach the head pattern with the body pattern, on the straight end part.

heart cut out

Trace and cut out a heart pattern from red or pink cardstock.
