That's right...I said Valentine ornament!
I know it's crazy that we just took down the Christmas tree decorations, but over at The Cutting Cafe, the hits keep coming and the holiday festivities never stop!
So let's go see what I've made using the following cut files...
By enlarging this heart to desired size and duplicating it twice, I was able to join the sides together and paint it black, crackle it and then paint it red. The weathered wood appearance makes this faux wooden ornament look so pretty with die cut flourishes, ribbon, berries and wire hanger.
About 6 of these would look fabulous scattered around the Valentine tree.
Using the Heart Trio Card again, I made three different smaller ornaments and continued with the rustic, primitive look.
These hearts were different shapes and cut out from an old BINGO card for stability.
Some hearts got twine, others received moss, but each has a cute vintage sentiment, berries and bow.
For a larger table display or inside of a cabinet, I chose to use A-Z Letter Set and create my own X and O sign that I've covered with decorative cork sheets.
What's really fun about this set is that I turned the O into a shaker!
And finally, here are some little tags that could substitute as ornaments as well. With the twine loop on them, the possibilities are endless.
For these I used the following:
Regina designed this file to be a tri-fold card, but by cutting down the perforated lines, I was able to make three tags/ornaments.
Here you can see that I've lightly secured the envelope fold under a gently glued heart. This allows for you to open the envelope and write a tiny message inside for the recipient.
And there you have it.
