How do you say ‘I love you’ on Valentine’s Day?
I know for some the day is filled with red roses, candlelit dinners and quite a lot of fanfare.
My hubby and I have had more than 30+ Valentine Days together… and while my man is a romantic at heart, we’ve never made a big fuss on the actual day.
We tend to share little romantic gestures on a regular basis… and that’s the way I like it.
Even after 30 years I still love finding notes hidden under my pillow, a special treat in with the shopping, flowers or a romantic gift for no reason.
Everyone likes a little romance in their life!
This week I designed this sweet shabby heart with a special message.
To save this high resolution design (below), click to open full size in a new window and then right click and save to your own computer.
I printed the design on matte photo paper and then adhered it to a piece of 3mm MDF with Mod Podge and a squeegee.
I cut the heart out with a scroll saw. If you don’t have a scroll saw you could adhere the design to heavy card or balsa wood and cut out with a sharp craft knife.
Lightly sand the edges of the heart. I chose to paint these edges with a soft pink acrylic paint.
When dry, drill a small hole in the top and thread with a ribbon hanger. I used a strip of white tulle.
I’m enjoying mine tucked amongst my cottage pretties, but it would make a pretty tag or a gift for a friend.
I love that it is small enough to tuck inside an envelope and post off to surprise someone you love!
