Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: one card

Supplies:

  • 11.2 x 5.5 in red cardstock
  • A6 sized ordinary white printer paper
  • 2 white heart-shaped paper doilies sized 5.2" x 5.2"
  • 2 red feathers
  • 18 pearl flat-sided rhinestone flowers
  • 12 small 3D self-adhesive foam squares
  • pair of 5 mm wiggle eyes
  • teaspoonful of sesame seeds

Steps:

  1. Score the red cardstock to create a card sized 5.5" x 5.5".
  2. With the fold at the top, centre and glue one of the paper doilies to the front of the card.
  3. Draw a circle with a diameter of 1.4" on the piece of white printer paper. Paint the circle with the flesh paint, allow to dry and cut it out.
  4. Related Content(article continues below)
  5. From the second doily cut a heart that will be Cupid's body. Unless your doily contains an imbedded heart at the bottom like the one on the doily I used, you will have to cut your own heart with a size of 2.1" x 2.1".
  6. Glue Cupid's face to the card, and the red feathers below the face to add the wings.
  7. Add the 3D foam squares to the back of the smaller heart, and then add this heart to the card.
  8. Use the rhinestone flowers to decorate Cupid's body.
  9. Use glue and sesame seeds to add Cupid's hair, and glue the wiggle eyes in place.
  10. Use the black pen to add nostrils and a mouth, and draw heart-shaped cheeks with the red pen. Whoo-hoo! Cupid is ready to spread some love!

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

Cut a piece of white cardstock that measures 4x9 inches, and fold in half.

Cut a 3 inch heart from fabric scrap for cat's face. Cut a smaller heart (about 1 inch) from coordinating fabric for cat's ears. Cut the smaller heart in half vertically.

Apply glue around back edge of large heart and place it upside-down on card. Apply glue to each half of small heart and glue underneath cat's face for ears (refer to photo).

Cut two small circles from craft foam for eyes and glue into place. Using black marker, draw cat's nose and whiskers. Write "I love you" or other personal message below cat's head.
