Homemade Get Well Card

I recently had a friend (who is a newspaper editor) go through a heart attack and I also have been talking to him through a dating site. I have never met him yet, but wanted to give him something that meant something instead of just buying a commercial get well card. I saw this idea on a blog and thought "how appropriate, he just had a heart attack and he is an editor"!


Approximate Time: 30 minutes


  • book scrapping paper
  • black frame (5x7)
  • calligraphy pen
  • old romance paperback novel with yellowing pages, or if you can't find one with yellow pages, tea dye some


  1. Cut craft book scrapping paper to fit inside the frame.

  2. Using your best printing penmanship or if you do written calligraphy, pen "Every heart has a story to tell" in the upper half of your picture. Insert in frame when dry.

  3. Cut four or five hearts out of the book. If you have a scallop scissors, cut around the hearts to give them a fancier edge.

  4. Glue the center of the hearts on top of glass, in a place where there is no printing. I used my glue gun for this step, so the hearts can fan up.

Optional: It might be a nice addition to put a red arrow through the heart.
