Roses and sparkles

Coucou ! C'est Aurélie et je suis désolée que j'écris en retard...

I made valentines for some friends, and I just haven't posted about it yet! Now is better than never, though.

My supplies were the following: sparkly pink paper, scissors, ribbon, rosettes, tape, and white paper. 

I had an idea in mind for my valentines, but I changed my mind when I started making them. Instead of making the rosettes and ribbon permanent fixtures on the card, I thought I would make them removable so that the recipients can wear them as headbands. Being a dancer, I can never have too many fun hair accessories to wear with my leotards. The first thing I did was cut the ribbon into an appropriate length.

I then chose four rosettes and sewed them on:

I wrapped the headband around the front of the card and taped it to the back to make it easily removable.


Here is the finished product!

I hope you enjoyed the cards. If you made cards this year, what do yours look like? I'd love to see them! I'll be posting about my Valentine's Day goodies soon.

Bonne Saint-Valentin!

Bisous,
Aurélie
