I made these valentines a couple years ago and thought it would be fun to post about them again. The photos are from before I had my ‘real’ camera, seems like I’ve had my camera forever but it hasn’t been a year quite yet!
Stamps. A must when card-making:) I prefer Cavallini.
A trug full of supplies and tools. Scissors, punches, twine, ribbon, tape, tickets, glue…
Cut some card stock into card size pieces. No measuring or perfectness here, just wing it.
Hot glue gun. Another must. This white metal stool works just grand to set my hot glue gun on. I’ve managed to get hot glue on my table before and it doesn’t come off so well 🙁
Make some arrows out of skewers and Japanese Washi tape.
Follow the instructions HERE to make the arrows.
We made several small arrows by cutting the skewers into 2, 3 or 4 pieces.
We also used toothpicks. This sized them for gluing to cards.
I love texture. Layer it up!
I just used whatever I had on hand at the time.
Old maps are a favorite crafting item of mine. There is no end to the crafting you can do with fun old maps.
Looking at these old photos makes me want to make some new Valentines!
Do you make Valentines every year? I’m thinking I might have to see what cute kids valentines are out there this year – you can detail them up and make them look like they never saw the inside of a big box store 🙂
