Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Is there something you like about this day?
Do you know the history how Valentine’s Day was created?
Most importantly who was St. Valentine?
Let‘s start with who was St. Valentine.
From historical sources and the internet 😊 we can learn that St. Valentine was a clergyman in Rome.
In his time, Christianity wasn‘t so popular and he was performing marriages in a secret. Authorities find out about it and St. Valentine become their victim.
On the fateful day, when St. Valentine lost his life, lovers started to celebrate this day as St. Valentine’s day❤️
It is such a sad story but at the same time there is something niceabout it.
When I was a kid, I used to be my room creating nice and sweet Valentines cards all the time. I loved it! That creative moment… I was enjoying it to the fullest!
If you are in a mood to create something by yourself, something not at all complicated, you are at right place 🙂
Shall we begin?
What we need:
- thicker paper (ca. 180g-220g/m2)
- Black Maren/or black pen (even colourful markers if you like, it is up to you)
- Heart shape (you can draw it yourself or use cookie cutter as your template)
- Chocolates in a shape of heart
- Adhesive transparent dots
- 3D double tape
- Good mood
- Nice music
- And a bit of time
First step will be creating hearts, which will be used as a base.
Size depends on templates. It will look nice on a size ca. 7 cm x 5cm.
Small chocolates will be used as a template for creating one small heart.
This heart will be used as a template for drawing heart in a center of the big one👍🏻
With a black marker we will draw around our mini heart template we created.
Now we can write a secret message into the heart we have just drawn.
It is totally up to you, what will be your message 🥰
I love to use stamping cushion, lightly around the edges. It will create a bit of a dramatic look.
In case you have more crafting supplies and there will be a paper cutter with nice shapes like a butterfly 🦋 use it 😊 it will look lovely.
You can add few more things if you like 👍🏻 Using 3D tape.
Now this is a cool thing I found years ago 😃 Adhesive transparent dots.
Last touch for this project is to add chocolate heart onto the secret message.
These dots are amazing! Stick one dot on a back of chocolate heart. Now stick chocolate on to the secret message.
These dots won‘t destroy paper and message will be perfect surprise once chocolate is removed 🥰
Valentines secret message card is finished! Well done🥳
Sharing is caring.
