Valentine Decorations

Decorated window in my Blue Summer House.

Garland Recipe
Red Card.
Sizzix Original Die - Frame, Lace Heart.
This garland was inspired by the Cricut Blog Valentine's Day Garland post.  I used a Sizzix die instead of a Cricut cartridge.  The hearts where die cut then stapled together in a row.

Table Decoration Recipe
White, red and black card.
Sizzix Original Die - Locket, Heart.
Clear acetate.
I die cut 2 sets of the heart locket and glued them together at the top of the heart I then added a stand which I made made from clear acetate.

Table Decoration Recipe
Red card.
Sizzix Original Die - Cupid.
These cupids can be made two ways.  You can cut the red card into a long strip and fold it up then die cut it making sure the card is just short of the edge of die so the cupids are joined.  Or you can cut two individual cupids and glue them together but don't glue the legs this will act as a stand.

These projects where entered into the following challenges:
Decorate To Celebrate! Challenge: Challenge #17 Valentine's Day.
Crafty Creations Challenge: Challenge #154 Anything But A Card Valentine's For Kids.
