You will need:
paperclay heart Valentine photo

* Paper clay
* Aluminum foil
* Small paper flowers
* Paper doily
* Untwisted paper twine or crepe paper
* Ribbon
* Scrap of cardstock or patterned paper for tag
* Embroidery floss
* Wire
* Wire cutter
* Red or pink acrylic paint
* Paint brush
* Sandpaper
* Paper towel
* Pencil
* Gel pen or marker
* Scissors
* White glue
* Puncher
* Heat gun (optional)

Cut a 6-inch length of soft wire and bend it in the middle. Wrap the wire twice around a pencil and twist the wire together to form a loop. Bend the ends of the wire into a W, as shown:



Take some aluminum foil (around two feet long from a roll of foil) and wrap it around the wire, squashing the foil into a heart shape. Leave the loop sticking out:



Take some paper clay and cover the foil completely, molding the clay to form a heart. Let it dry completely, using a heat gun if necessary to speed up the process.



Paint the heart with white acrylic and let dry completely, and paint on a coat of pink acrylic (you can mix red and white paint to get pink). Let dry completely, then sand the heart lightly to distress it. Wipe off the dust with a paper towel.

Cut lace motifs from a paper doily and glue them together to make a much smaller doily that would fit on the heart. Cut a piece of untwisted paper yarn or crepe paper, and pleat it into a circle. Glue this onto the doily. Cut three more lace motifs and arrange them into a triangle on top of the pleats. Arrange the flowers on top of the lace motifs so that the lace and flowers alternate, and glue both lace and flowers into place.



Glue the bouquet onto the heart. Cut a length of ribbon and tie it around the wire loop. Make a small tag from cardstock or patterned paper and write a sentiment or the recipient’s name on it with a gel pen or marker. Punch a hole on one end, and thread some embroidery floss through it. Tie the tag to the loop.
