So after Valentine’s Day Card Workshop 1 – You Make My Heart Alive, today is your second class in our V-Day cards series.
Today’s card is inspired by one of my favourite songs – You Are Stuck in My Heart by C21. Here’s what it looks like:
Things you’ll need:
1. Medium sized post-its/heart-shaped post-its if available.
3. A pencil.
5. Coloured pens (Optional, for decoration)
Valentine’s Day card 2 step 1
You need to create 2 heart shapes such that one fits inside the other. You can either start from 2 heart shaped post-its…
…or broad post-its from which you can create the heart shapes on your own.
Valentine’s Day card 2 step 2
Fold the post-it in half so that the two edges coincide perfectly. Press well.
Valentine’s Day card 2 step 3
Carefully draw a half-heart on any one side of this folded piece of paper.
Cut along the drawn lines to create a perfect, symmetrical heart shape.
Now the important part.
Valentines Day Card 2 step 4
Fold the heart in half and make two marks on its spine at a specific distance from each other. I’ve chosen 3.5 cm here.
Valentines Day Card 2 step 5
Fold the heart and cut out a very thin slit on its spine.
Valentines Day Card 2 step 6
Choose another heart-shaped post-it (or make it following the first few steps).
Valentines Day Card 2 step 7
Measure out the same distance (3.5 cm) from the top of the spine of the second heart.
Valentines Day Card 2 step 8
Your objective is to cut out a smaller heart from this second heart, with spine measuring exactly the same as what you measured out on the spine of the first heart (so that the two fit together perfectly).
Valentines Day Card 2 step 9
Now the tricky part. Slide the smaller heart through the slit on the spine of the bigger one. Be careful not to tear any of them!
Valentines Day Card 2 step 10
Here, you have your “You are Stuck in My Heart”. Now try around variations like actually attaching the sticky sides of the post-its, to give a more “stuck” effect :) …
…Or pour out your heart with messages…
You know your special someone will never forget it. :)
