DIY projects are fun, personalized, and hopefully thrifty! One other box they should check is “quick”, because with phones buzzing and packed schedules, no one really has time for hours at the crafting table.

So if your to-do list isn’t as blank as the one above, this is the perfect, 2-step craft for you. It’ll brighten up your work space in just minutes —I “pom”ise!

DIY Sunday: “You Make My Heart Flutter”Card

Valentine's DIYValentine’s Day is finally here and love is in the air. Whether you’re saying “je t’aime” to your sweetheart or just showing your friends you care, a card is the perfect way to put those feelings on paper.

Of course, you can dash to the store and pick up a printed card with pre-written texts and mass-made designs. But are those sentiments really your own? Be original this year and make a card from scratch. Plus, if you’re in a pinch for time and have special dinner plans tonight, this card should take no time to make. With lots of pretty pink layers, this is the most posh way to tell someone they make your heart flutter!

Tools:

Scissors
Glue
Pink patterned wrapping paper
Pink tissue/stuffing paper
Blank Card

Instructions:

  1. Cut a 12×18 cm piece of the wrapping paper and fold it in half. Draw half of a heart on the side, and cut along the outline. When you unfold, you should have a full heart.
  2. Do the same with the tissue paper, but make the dimensions slightly larger: 12.5×18.5 cm.
  3. Glue layer by layer only at the “seam” (middle or along the fold line) of the heart onto the blank card. Let dry and ruffle up layers once set, to give volume or “flutter”.

That’s all there is to it –three steps and you’re done!

Style is served!

PS: Berkeley, my cat, decided to crash the photo-op and become part of the picture! Thought it would make a great outtake.
