-A heart shaped cookie cutter isn't just for edible treats. Add paint and paper and you got the tools to make a sweet DIY Valentine that can't be beat. Here's what you'll need: 5 x 7 paper cards, acrylic paint and contrasting colors, tom pink rulers, and heart shaped cookie cutters. Any combination of contrasting pink colors will work. We use shades of pink and yellow plus white. Lay your card on a table. Apply the main color using your ruler, lifting as you approach the edge. It could help to practice on scratch paper beforehand to get the hand of it. Once dry, you can stamp your design. Play with different sizes and experiment with overlapping parts as borders or layer designs. When finished, let you Valentines dry. Easy to create. These tokens of love will be a favorite this valentines day.
