Every year since 1984 I have handmade Valentines for family and friends. This year I made a small pocket for candy and covered the surface with a doily. The effect was so pretty I decided to cover several other things. My friend Perrie graciously loaned me her Valentine as I didn't keep one for myself (I only keep the extra candy).
This lantern is a Sizzix die by Karen Burniston. I used spray adhesive to affix doilies to card stock this particular piece had lace on one side which made a very pretty interior. Then I cut the lantern out. The pressure of the die really helps the doily adhere to the paper. I used vintage ribbon to finish. Simple, quick, and, easy.
This is the twist cube die also by Karen Burniston. Again, I used spray adhesive to affix the doiles to pink card stock, cut out the cube, assembled, and added ribbon and brad. I added a layer of varnish to keep the smaller edges from fraying.
