INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Using the provided pattern, trace the hearts out onto craft paper and then cut them out with scissors.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint three hearts in Razzle Berry and two in Wild Berry using a watercolor effect: Add two to three drops of paint to a palette or plastic plate; load a brush with water; and mix the loaded brush into the paint. (The mix should be watery.) Paint the hearts and let dry thoroughly. Repeat the same watercolor mix with Champagne Gold and flick the bristles of the brush about 4" to 5" above the hearts to create a splatter effect. Let dry completely.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Once the hearts are completely dry, write romantic messages onto the front of the hearts. Draw stitches around the edge of the hearts. (See photo.) Attach the skewers to the backs of the hearts with hot glue.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Add the message hearts to a bouquet to surprise that special someone on Valentine's Day.
