Needing to make that last minute valentine, for that special someone? We found the perfect Valentine DIY that is not only extremely adorable, but extremely easy to make! For those of you who haven’t met this beaut, meet Justine! She’s assisted us in various DIY projects and is one talented soul. First things first, You will need the following: *scissors *tape (or hot glue) *black cardstock *patterned cardstock *a hole punch (we used an earring) *some sort of twine *paint, or a glitter pen *mini clothes pins (optional) Now grab your coffee or tea and lets get to crafting! Start off by taking a square piece of card-stock and folding it in half. We used black card-stock because we wanted the color of the hearts to pop against the black! Here’s where you can be creative! Pick out some cool patterned card-stock of your choice. Justine laid them out to help her visualize what it would look like once they were against the black. Next, you will need to cut out the hearts. NO TEMPLATES NECESSARY (: Simply fold your paper in half and cut a semi circle into the fold. Check out her cute tunic + scarf. Both are new arrivals in the boutique (; Here in this next step we had to improvise (tehe), but you could use a thumbtack or hole punch of some sort, instead we used an earring (haha… you’ve got to make the best of what you have)! Take whatever you’re using and poke a little hole into both top corners of the hearts. Once you’ve done that, take your twine and spread it across the card to measure it. Now here you may need a thumb tack or needle to give you more control. Take the twine and poke it through each heart like so. Take the ends of the twine and tape or hot glue them to the inside of your card & let love do the rest as you write your message with your paint or glitter pen inside the card!
Now add your personal touch! For us it was mini clothes pins to hang the hearts with, for you it could be glitter, sequins, or cute little doodles. and DRUM ROLL PLEASE….
