custom cards.

It's hard to believe that February is in full swing and Valentine's Day is next week. Where does the time go?! 

In preparation for Valentine's day, I decided to make homemade cards. After all, nothing is more romantic than putting a little hard work into a present. After visiting one of the cutest boutiques in Columbus, On Paper, I was really excited to start my project. 

I bought an ivory sheet of paper with fringed edges, a matching envelope, 30 pretty brads, monogrammed seals (letter "H"), new pen and super glue.

After creasing the paper in half, I cut out a heart using another piece of paper. I wasn't confident that I could draw a perfect heart so I reverted back to 2nd grade and folded a piece of paper in half and cut a half of a heart.  Who knew those skills would still come in handy?!

Next, I laid out the brads along the heart and glued. I finished by erasing any pencil marks and writing "love you" along the edge. Voil√†! Custom Valentine Card for anyone special in your life.
