Cobweb Valentine

One of my first posts was a tutorial on making a Cobweb Valentine, you can find it here.  It was and still is one of my most popular posts.  However, I made a big mistake and deleted many of the pictures!  Now when ever someone looks at it I feel bad that so much is missing!  So I decided to make another one!

I know what you’re thinking, a valentine in October?!  But really, you can give one of these any time, they are just sweet!

You will need,

  • The template, found at Martha
  • Craft knife
  • Cutting mat
  • Masking tape
  • Glue
  • Bone folder
  • And whatever embellishments you like

First Step:  Cut the template in half along the dotted line.  Then cut out a piece of card stock that is slightly bigger than the heart.

Step two:  Fold the card stock over, enough to cover half the template. Lightly tape one half of the template to the paper. Make sure the center of the heart is against the fold of the card stock.

Step three:  Using your craft knife, cut along every line. Make sure that you get right through all three layers!

Step four:  Pop it out and stretch!

Step five:  Cut out of card stock a heart for the back.  Make it slightly bigger than the cobweb.

Step six:  Cut out two holes in the center of the heart, add brads and tie a ribbon handle.

Step seven:  Glue together the top and back all around the edge.

Lastly, have fun embellishing (my favorite part)!
