Love Letter Votive Sleeves

Go ahead, make his day. Send someone you love a handcrafted greeting card bearing a thoughtful little gift you made yourself.

Give new meaning to the old saying, "Love is in the air," when you give or mail this valentine to someone special.

It starts with scored and folded red cardstock embellished with running stitches of pink embroidery floss and a heart cut from embossing foil.

Inside is a surprise: paper sleeves that fit around votive candleholders and spell out a glowing message of love.


    Construct each votive sleeve from two strips of pink cardstock scored and folded into two equal sections. Leave a tab on one end for gluing or taping the pieces together neatly.

    Trace the letters on the left-hand side of the cardstock and heart shapes onto the right-hand side of the cardstock with pencil, then cut them out using a crafts knife. Use double-stick tape to attach a square of hot pink vellum to the cutout area to give the candlelight a soft, romantic glow.

    To mail, tuck the candle sleeves into pockets made from pieces of white cardstock that have been printed with a message, cut to fit, and sewn to the inside of the card using a simple running stitch.

    Assemble the inner and outer pages of the card and sew them together booklet-style with a double strand of pink embroidery floss. Tie the loose ends in a bow.

    Note: The recipient will need to attach the two parts of each candle sleeve at the flaps with double-stick tape or white glue.
