~Valentines Day has always been one of my very favorite holidays. Not really sure why, but there is just something about chocolates, Love, hearts, chocolates, cupid , and more chocolate that makes me love this particular day.
Antique valentine cards that are cut and woven are my favorite. A couple years ago, I spent a few days trying to figure out how to make some for my dolls. They are so much fun to make. It is hard to stop! Once you get going , just let your imagination take over. I like putting them in small painted boxes with tiny notes or even making tiny envelopes to put them in. Who wouldn't love a miniature valentine?
Okay, so the first thing you need is a pair of small sharp scissors that can cut fine. This is important.
Next, paper that isn't too heavy or too flimsy. I had to experiment with several different kinds of paper before I found the type that worked for me. After spending money buying expensive colored paper from the art store, I ended up using Laid paper from my printer! It had the right weight and was easier to cut. Experiment and find what suits you best. I also used special markers to color and age the Valentines when I was done.
