How to Make an Upcycled Valentine

by Denise Hahn

Use a drug store candy heart box to make a special almost handmade gift for Valentines Day


  • drugstore candy heart box
  • decorative paper
  • Petaloo Trims
  • Petaloo Flowers
  • Elmers Glue
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Petaloo Vintage Dazzlers
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    here are all the goodies. You can buy Petaloo products at any online retailer! Just google em!

    Step 2

    Pick a piece of decorative paper and trace around the heart. Cut out with scissors

    Step 3

    swirl around a thin bit of elmers glue and stick down the heart

    Step 4

    I added some of Petaloos Crocheted Trims in cream to the sides but you can also measure and cut more paper for the edges

    Step 5

    Hot glue it down!

    Step 6

    Now hit the bottom "lip" of the heart with another Petaloo Trim

    Step 7

    Now for the fun part, decorate as you choose. First I inked the edges with a red Colorbox Cats eye.

    Step 8

    Now I line up all my decor and get it just right before I glue down anything

    Step 9

    Voila! I used Patloo Botanica flowers to decorate.
