Hello! I can hardly believe how fast January is flying by already! I would like to keep up with the Tuesday tutorials I started during the holiday season, and to start off the year I'm reposting a little project I created for Joli Paquet a couple of years ago. It might give you a jump start on thinking about your Valentines. So, let's get started.
Do you have lots of scraps of lace and trims? This project is a great project to use those scraps and make some pretty Valentines! I sewed my Valentines, but you can certainly make this project using your favorite adhesives if you prefer not to sew.
Hot glue or othe strong adhesive (I use The Ultimate glue)
Begin by cutting a heart shape out of your canvas or card stock. Then brush a layer of paint onto the heart. And set aside to dry.
While your canvas is drying gather your favorite scraps of lace and trim. Cover your heart with glue dots that will help you keep your laces in place while you sew them on. Lay your trims over the heart in whatever manor pleases you.
That's it! A great way to use up those vintage scraps of lace! You could further embellish your scrappy Valentines with words, or vintage millinery flowers.
