Hello there Pebbles Fans, it’s Terhi Koskinen here today with some very very lovely and sweet ideas for the upcoming Valentine’s Day!
This is a card. Or a mini book. Or a book. I don’t know. But no matter what it is, it is load with cute things and it will be sent to my best friend on 14th of February to make her day a bit happier.
Before starting to do anything, I had a vision in my mind to create a mini book full of love and memories from the happiest times with my loved one, but once I flipped through the ‘Loves Me’ patterned papers I knew I had to do a card – or something card-like to be send away.
I started the process by cutting out the tags from one of the patterned papers, and to add one tag with foil effect I also used the 6″x6″ paper pad.
The tags are sized 2″x3″, and to cover the back side partly of each I cut 1 1/4″x2″ sized pieces from another patterned paper. To make the result smooth and balanced, I only used one pattern to the back sides.
Then I continued the cutting fun by cutting out several blooms and flowers from one of the papers to be the embellishments.
As soon as I had all the tags ready, all blooms cut out and my foam dots on the table, I started to adhere the blooms onto the tags. In addition, few of tags got a phrase or two to complete the look.
The phrases and words are all cut out from patterned papers too. And as this card is mini book-like already, I wanted to braid some embroidery threads and decorate it with some charms and tassels – now the look of this card/book/whatever will be perfect!
To finish the process I took one metal ring and hang all the tags to it. The braid is on top of everything, hanging wild like the koalas.
Inspired? I hope you are! I never knew I’d love Valentine’s Day crafts this much!
Who could resist those cute koalas!?
Hope you’ll have a great day, full of love and sweet things!
