Thank you for your comments and thoughts on my post yesterday, I think we've all been there. Time to enlighten the unenlightened to the delights of the crafting rather than the purchasing!
'My heart❤ belongs to you' Valentine's card.
You will need:
Suitably coloured paper
Draw around your saucer
and cut out
Fold your circle
first in half,
finally in 8ths
Draw a half a heart❤ on one half of an 8th
Don't forget to draw in a tab
see photo below right
Cut out the half you have drawn
then, following the instructions below ...
fold a segment over on to the cut half,
and draw around the cut side
this gives a nicely symmetrical heart❤
And cut out
Now comes the fun part,
open out your heart-flake❤
and marvel how prettily it turned out!
Reach for your pens
and decorate to your heart's❤ content!
After you have had a happy few minutes making pretties
carefully fold your heart-flake❤
and tie it closed...
ready to give to some one special
