In this workshop, participants made beautiful valentines and/or notecards using a variety of materials, including paper, beads, feathers and more. Facilitators Dena Van Derveer and Kimberly Powell provided samples and materials that jump-started everyone’s creativity. Items included small dried wild flowers, small beads, small ribbons, rice papers, colored papers, tissue papers, music paper, glitter pens and glitter, lace, trim, small feathers, strings, very small sea shells, old stamps… anything small and beautiful!
If you couldn’t make it to the workshop, or if you did, but didn’t get to do everything and want to try some other techniques at home, here are some links of things to try.
— Pocket Valentine pattern & instructions (pdf)
— Heart Pocket card (accordian-style; on Michaels website)
— Monogram card (could be adapted for heart design; on Michaels website)
— Old-Fashioned Popup pattern & instructions from Joli Paquet (warning, annoying music)
— Some simple envelope templates (most fit on regular paper, and thus are small)
Let us know if you find other wonderful ideas. We can post them here, too!
