Making valentines is always a favorite yearly activity. This year I had to start earlier to get my daughter's in the mail on time.
I saw a papercut on instagram by @hesperdoodle and that was it, I was soon papercutting my own version for my girl.
Here's it is before I did a little more sprucing (fine cutting). As this was my first ever papercutting, I had a bit of a rough result, but I love it none the less. I look forward to doing it again and I think I'll do a little research before I do another, and invest in a finer razor blade! To send it to her, I just glued it to a hot pink piece of paper so I could write a love note on the back.
While I had the brush script out, I made some custom gift wrap for my friend Jenny's belated b'day gift. I posted before about her solo art exhibit (called "I see boat people"), and I thought it totally appropriate theme for her paper:
She liked it ;). Love this pic of her too!
I love hand made things.
And Valentine's Day is especially fun due to giving love being the theme and all...
