Valentines From The Heart

By: Susan Lowenthal for Krylon

Handmade papers and gold leafing accents make it easy to send someone special a little love on Valentine's Day with this project from Krylon.

Handmade Valentine from the Heart

Materials:

  • Krylon Spray Adhesive - Clear (#7010)
  • Krylon Leafing Pens - 18 KT. Gold (#9901)
  • Krylon Leafing Pens - Silver (#9902)
  • Handmade Papers – 1 sheet each: red and white
  • Kreate-a-b.a.g. Template Kit
  • Kreate-a-lope Envelope maker (Green Sneakers)
  • Fabric adhesive
  • Deckle Edge Scissors
  • Gold or Silver ribbon and cord
  • Hole punch
  • Double-sided tape

Steps:

  1. Using the Kreate-a-b.a.g. large template, place on white paper, following manufacturer's directions to create bag. (When working with hand-made papers, it will be easier to tear them if you brush water along the edge of the template first).
     
  2. Fold according to manufacturer's directions.
     
  3. Spray adhesive along the appropriate edges, gluing according to directions.
     
  4. Punch holes in top to tie on handles (cording).
     
  5. From the red paper, cut out three hearts with deckle edge scissors, making one slightly larger than the others.
     
  6. Trace around the edges with gold and silver leafing pens. Write Love on the larger heart. Use the leafing pen with the point horizontal and with a very light touch, stroke along the paper on the two smaller hearts. The pens will highlight the fibers in the paper creating a shimmering look.
     
  7. Using spray adhesive, glue the hearts into place. (Please reference photo.)
     
  8. Adhere bow with fabric adhesive.
     
  9. Using Kreate-a-lope large template, brush water along the outside edge and tear red paper along template to make envelope. Follow manufacturers instructions for folding.
     
  10. Place double-sided tape along edges to be glued.
     
  11. To create cards, fold paper in half and use smaller template to tear the paper. Moisten edges and tear along template.
     
  12. Embellish as desired. You can layer the card by tearing folded papers in decreasing sizes and placing one inside the other.
