I've been working on ideas for valentines made from repurposed materials. Yesterday I made a three-dimensional valentine from a cereal box and magazine and catalog pages.
I cut two hearts from the cereal box, then I created collages on both sides of each heart. I decided to make one heart full of "green" imagery, mostly plants and trees and landscape scenes.
On the other heart, I used green article titles from a devotional magazine. I drew on top of the collage with a green Sharpie marker.
To connect the hearts, I scored, then folded each heart at the center. Then I punched a few holes with an awl on those center lines, and sewed the hearts together with some waxed linen thread.
I punched a hole at the top of each piece of the heart (four holes total) and sewed more waxed linen thread to create the loop for hanging.
