"This sweet llama papercraft is a fantastic Valentine's Day craft. Embossed paper is what makes cuddly llama such a fun project. With the ability to make their llama their own, your kids will love making this llama craft. In addition to embossed paper, you'll need to gather a few supplies you likely have around your home. Afterwards, your kids can give their llama as a Valentine's day gift or attach it to a goodie to give away."
