Making Valentines: 3 Hearts Swan
I am mailing all my Valentines this coming week, so I set aside time to make them this weekend; a nice break from working on Income Taxes and Cooking.
I was taught how to make 3 Heart Swans in my early parenting days and I thought they were a lovely card that I would like to make again.
I cut an 8.5” by 11” sheet of art paper into thirds and folded the thirds in half. I had my guy draw a pattern:
I cut it out – I find it easier to use smaller scissors or exacta knives:
My kids added heart stickers for eyes (one even cut tiny eyes!) and another cut a V to make tail feathers.
Our Swan pair is busy gliding the Lake this morning; inspiring this idea.
We added glitter too and sometimes a poem and occasionally Hersey’s Kisses.
My partner made a chain of swans which he can connect with paste or tape and surround a cupcake paper for a surprise dish.
Here is a lovely paper cut Valentine from Denmark. These were on all the tables for a wedding!
Are you making Valentines this year? Writing poems? Thinking chocolates, flowers and candy? What is your plan? Please share.
