The Pie and I don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I thought I would make up a little card for Cait and send it home to Ottawa.
The base is cardboard with construction paper overlaid on top and I used construction paper to make the “hinges” of the card.
The “clothing” for the figure on top is a textured origami. The limbs are pipe cleaner and the heart is made of felt. Heartfelt. Get it?
I originally just had glue holding everything down, but you see I had to resort to tape. Alas.
Under the “clothing” is a hole to accommodate this chocolate bar (which I bought from the Newfoundland Chocolate Company here in St. John’s, specifically because their bars are small enough to fit in an envelope), which is wrapped in origami.
I used a circle punch to make confetti out of my paper scraps and stuffed a bunch of it inside the card so it will all fall out when she opens it.
♥ Happy Valentine’s Day! ♥
