Gearing Up for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is right around the corner!

In preparation, I've pulled out my Love Blooms and Love Bites stamps to help create this Valentine Luminary. By the way, if you don't already have these stamps, you'll LOVE the price they are right now!

Valentine Luminary:

Decorating the luminary was really the final touch. Here's what happened before the rubber stamping began . . .

1. Cut cardstock to 6x12" and score at 2-3/4, 5-1/2, 8-1/4, 11".

2. Add stencil shapes to the scored paper so they overlap the first and third score lines.

3. Use a craft knife to cut along the edge of the stenciled shape that extends past the score line.

3. Stamp and mist to decorate. Fold on score lines and round corners, if desired. Use adhesive or glue to attach the 1" tab, creating an open rectangle. Place luminary over battery-operated votive. Hit the lights. Instant romance. :)

The luminary will fold flat for easy storage after Valentine's Day. Make one for the next season!

While in the Valentine decorating spirit, I gave these Clock Tower projects a little extra "love" to use as a love shack Valentine gift. I'll let the pictures do the talkin'!

Make garland with waxed linen thread and tiny punched hearts.
