It Starts with the Heart

It Starts with the Heart

The holiday of love is right around the corner, and it's a perfect time to make some Valentines that come straight from the heart. Wondering where to begin? It begins with the heart of course! This universal symbol of love can be interpreted in many different creative ways. From paper cutting techniques to miniature heart pillow ornaments, the heart shape is a clear cut winner when creating your own handmade Valentines crafts.

Reimagine this lovely shape in a variety of materials from cut paper, buttons, or fabric. Create stunning visual effects with both 2D and 3D applications. For instance, a variety of buttons arranged in a heart shape makes a stunning colorful Valentine, while the subtle 3D tone-on-tone technique of folded and rolled paper can make a beautiful warm display as well.

Be creative, and choose to give a handmade Valentine's Day craft this year. One thing will be for sure — your heartfelt sentiments will be both felt and adored.
