Eye Love You Valentine's Day Art Work - finished projectThroughout the "dating" period - my fiancé and I would send cheesy text messages and we'd always do the emoji eye heart finger pointing to emphasize I love you, sort of in "code".

So I thought it would be cute to make this little art work. You can write "eye" so the art work flows better, but I just wrote "I".

Total Time: 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • cardboard piece
  • paper
  • magazine clippings
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • Sharpie pens
Eye Love You Valentine's Day Art Work - supplies
 

Steps:

  1. For my art work base, I used a piece of cardboard backing paper from a notebook measuring 7.25" x 5.5".
  2. Eye Love You Valentine's Day Art Work - piece of cardboard notebook backing paper
     
  3. I quickly cut out a piece of white paper measuring the same as the cardboard and sketched out an eye shape.
  4. Eye Love You Valentine's Day Art Work - piece of white paper the same size with an eye sketched on it
     
  5. I cut out the eye traced it and then used an oval to trace the iris/pupil.

  13. For finishing up the artwork, I found "LOVE" in the magazine to glue in the center. Or you can individually cut up letters or use stickers.

  15. Lastly I wrote "I" and "You" in cursive with a thin Sharpie pen. Ready to write on the backside of the art piece to use as a flat card if you wish or leave the art work as is!
