In such hearts, you can independently write combinations of different words or symbols: cherries meaning going to a restaurant or a box of chocolate, a handbag, which means buying a new thing or rings (which means buying jewelry). Girls can use symbols of equipment, men's accessories. Print your own annotation separately.
In the version for children, instead of hearts, you can use flowers, stars or circles - in a large company at a children's party such lottery can be used in contests and riddles.
DIY card with confetti by February 14
What gift can do without a postcard? Whatever you decide to donate, it is on the card that the mission of the main message falls - words of support, congratulations, declarations of love. And if this is a postcard with your own hands, then you will definitely make an unforgettable impression on the addressee.
On Valentine's Day cards become even more necessary, because it is thanks to them that the easiest way to admit their feelings.
For work you will need:a finished white card without a picture (you can do it yourself by folding a sheet of thick paper in half);
book page, red, white and pink paper (can be with a beautiful ornament);
two sheets of transparent material;
white sheet of paper (not cardboard);
sewing machine and thread (if there is none, you can manually sew the “forward needle”).
Take your cardboard blank for the card and open it like a book. On the left inner side draw a simple pencil heart. It should not be too large or small - about 2/3 of the length of the postcard. After that, using a clerical knife, cut a heart.
Turn the card upside down after the heart is cut out.
Using the hole punch, make a lot of confetti from red, white and pink paper, as well as from the book page. In fact, you can choose colors at your discretion, and confetti can be taken ready.
Take your transparent film. Measure on it with a square ruler, the side of which is about 2-3 centimeters more than the cut out heart. Cut two identical squares.
It's time to use a sewing machine. We remind you, if you do not have it, you can make everything manually with a stitch “forward needle”. Fold the two halves of the film, stitch it on three sides so that you have a pocket.Mix confetti in different colors, then fill it with a pocket.
Sew the remaining open side on the sewing machine. Or use a needle and thread.
Gently grease each side of the transparent blank. Be careful - if the glue is too much, you can stain the front side of the work. Glue the pocket so that it completely covers the heart. Press firmly against the left side of the postcard.
Take a sheet of white paper. Measure it so that the sides are equal to the sides of the open postcard. After that, fold the sheet in half. Gently grease each edge of the paper and a few spots in the center. Glue the white sheet on the inside of the postcard.
