Consider going old-style this Valentine's day and making a Valentine's card decorated with fabric scraps and sewing notions.
Update the card-making process a bit, though, by using high quality card stock and craft glue to make a truly collectible heirloom card.
What You'll Need:
- 1 sheet of card stock per card
- Craft glue
- 1 three-inch red heart-shaped piece of felt
- 3 or 4 small heart-shaped fabric scraps
- Flat buttons
- Iridescent glitter
- Fold the card stock in half to form the card's shape.
- Spread a thin coat of craft glue on the back of the red felt heart, turn it over, and center it on the front of the card.
- Coat the back of the smaller hearts with glue and randomly stick them around the edges of the red felt heart.
- Run a thin bead of glue around each heart you want to add lace to and stick the lace in the glue around the hearts.
- Coat the back of one button and randomly choose a heart to stick it in. Repeat with the other buttons until you are happy with how the card looks.
- Run a thin bead of iridescent glue around the outer edge of the lace and around the perimeter of the card's front, like a border.
- Sprinkle glitter in the fresh line of glue.
- Allow the craft glue to dry completely on the Valentine's card before personalizing a greeting inside the card.
