DOILY VALENTINES cards


Supplies: (for all three projects)

2 Circular Doily (mine are 12″ in diameter)
A2 cards & envelopes
knife w/ sharp blade
ruler
cutting board
Aleene’s tacky glue
1 sheet printer paper

Instructions:

First up, we’re going to make a cutout doily valentine which is the one with the pink card above.

Step 1: You need to poke out the shapes of the doily that did not get fully separated when it was machine cut. This can be easily done by holding down the shape with your knife and gently pulling the rest of the doily away. Do this on a cutting board as you may have to actually do a little cutting.

Step 2: Turn the doily over so that the underside is facing up and place your card in the middle of the doily.

Step 3: Using your ruler with the card as your guide, mark with a pencil where you want to cut. Cut along your guides, you could even use scissors if you like. Save the scraps for the next project.

Step 4: Now, fold the sides over the card so that you can see where you want to cut off the design. Usually the doily design will help you make this decision. Go ahead and cut with your knife to reveal the design you want. Make sure to leave yourself enough room for a loving note.

Step 5: Starting with the back, glue the doily to the card. Now, it will be nearly impossible to glue every piece down, but you really just need to concentrate on the edges and the middle. Glue the doily and then lay the card inside of it. Flip over so that the doily is on top of the card and take your printer paper and lay it on top. Rub your fingers over the card & doily & paper to make sure that the doily is adhered to the card. This will ensure that you don’t get glue all over yourself. Then glue the sides to the front of the card and rub to secure using the printer paper. Let the card dry & you’re done! (you can press these between books while they dry if you like)

Next up, we’re going to make this white on ivory card made with the scraps of the last valentine.

Step 1: Take the scrap from the last card make sure all the holes are poked out.

Step 2: Center your card in the doily scrap

Step 3: Fold the sides up

Step 4: Glue the doily to the card just like the last one. And there you go! I used an ivory card with the white doily on this one because I love the way the 2 colors look together and I think this ones looks like lace.

Lastly, I’m going to show you how easy it is to line an envelope with a doily.

Step 1: Poke out all the holes in a full doily and lay it over the envelope with the center of the doily positioned just under the adhesive of the tip of the envelope with the wrong side up.

Step 2: Using your ruler and a pencil, mark where you will cut. If you are using the same size materials as I did, it will be easy since you only have to make the 2 cuts. The bottom will not need trimming. Go ahead and cut along your lines.

Step 3: Slide your cutout into the envelope to make sure it fits and fold it down along the crease of the envelope. Glue your doily inside your envelope. Put glue on the lower half first and slide inside the envelope and make sure it is secure. Then glue the top part and secure it using the printer paper.
