Gorgeous, but complicated, right?!
I have good news, friends! You can easily replicate little paper creations that won't cost you a fortune or look like you picked them up at the dollar store. And all this just in time for Valentines day!! Here's my tips for creating simple, but beautiful Valentines and I promise it won't take you more than 10 minutes.

// Supplies //
blank 3x5 cards
red paper for hearts
scraps of varied red, white or pink fabrics
stamp set and ink pad
various gift tags or colored scraps of paper
bakers twine, string or ribbon
1// Layer washi tape on a blank card and write your message in the blank space
2// Cut several layers of varied fabrics. I used white burlap and red cotton for these.
3// Stamp a simple message 'xo' or 'love' onto a small tag or colored paper and attach to bakers twine or string.
4// Cut red hearts from card stock or construction paper and attach to a small paper doily. I used 'sticky-dos' from Hobby Lobby to created a raised heart but you could simply glue them together.
5// Layer fabrics on top of the card and the doily on top of the fabric. Tie together with bakers twine and attach the mini tag.
