I will be doing a handful of posts on 2 themes for the next little bit: Love Letters and Yarn Cards.
This Post combines them both!
I love using yarn for letters. It gives them a 3D feel and it is SO easy! It also lets you personalize with a name without lots of stickers. We will use YARN instead!
1st, determine what you want your card to say. Then cut your paper in half and fold the ends in to make "doors" to the card.
2-Pencil the letters of the saying. The bigger the letters, the easier it is to add the yarn.
3-Write who the card is too on the back. This is harder later because the yarn makes it bumpy.
4-Next, hold the yarn over each letter and cut the yarn to the right sizes for each letter.
I like to put them over each letter like this, so I don't forget which pieces go to which letter.
5-After all of your pieces of yarn for your letters are cut (this really doesn't take long:) Then add Elmer's glue over each letter. Don't be stingy with the glue, you need a full line.
I like to do one letter at a time if my kids are helping. Otherwise they get their other fingers in the glue of the other letters.
6- Continue to add the yarn for each letter:
Here is what it looks like when it is done!
Now just add a sticker to close the heart and give it to your valentine!
You can personalize with their name too!
