Vintagr Spool Valentine

Vintage Spool Valentine



  • A vintage spool-- or any type of spool will do. Even a small dowel cut to the size you desire will work.
  • A button-- red looks cute.
  • Paper-- I used some thrifted adding machine tape and then cut it to fit.
  • Tape-- I used some Japanese floral tape, but any tape will work.
  • String-- I used hemp twine
  • Heart Bead--if you wish
  • Glue--to glue the string and button to the top of the spool.

Vintage Spool Valentine


  1. Write your love note, poem, song lyrics (I wrote The Cure's Love Song lyrics) on the paper. Tape it to the spool.
  2. Apply glue to the button and secure the string underneath it.
  3. Roll up the paper on the spool and wrap the string around it. Secure.

I had my sister and her fianc do this for their wedding. They wrote a cute little message to each other the day before the wedding and I set it all up. My sister's spool had a veil on top of a white button and a small bouquet instead of a bead. Her fianc's had a black button with a tiny bow tie instead of a bead. They loved them. Thanks for the idea.
