Make your own unique Valentine's card to show that special person in your life just how much you care for them. All you need are a few scraps of paper, some wax crayons, and a touch of imagination. Add some kisses for a final flourish and you'll have the perfect greeting for February 14.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Find a textured surface such as a floor or wall panel from which to take a wax rubbing. Lay a piece of cartridge or tissue paper over the surface and rub a wax crayon over the paper until you get an impression. Rub a crayon in the opposite direction to build up the image.

    Note: Use several different colours of crayons to add variety to your design.

  2. Cut a square out of the textured paper from step 1 and glue it onto the front of a blank card. Leave to dry.
  3. From a piece of coloured paper, cut out two heart shapes of slightly different sizes to fit within your textured background. Cut out a second heart from the centre of each shape to create a pair of heart silhouettes.

  5. Arrange the heart silhouettes on to the textured background and glue into place. Let dry.
  6. Use a metallic pen to draw a border around your finished design. Write a romantic greeting inside your card and then place it inside an envelope.

My staff gets very little recognition. The least little bit of recognition makes them happy. We have a fabulous nursing team and every so often I like to tell them how much they are appreciated for the work they do.

When buying cards for Valentine's Day or other special occasions, the really pretty ones with the glitter usually cost more than the ones without glitter. I decided to start purchasing the plain cards and add the glitter myself, using glitter paint.
