Creative Valentines

Day 4 of May Arts / Glue Arts Blog Week!

Creative Valentines

Latrice here with a fun and creative Valentine to share with you today. If you’re anything like me that means you hoard ribbon and have tons of scraps that you have no idea what to do with. Well let me tell you that my whole project is created from scraps. Paper and ribbon both. Here is what I created for you today.



Here are the pieces I used to create it.




  • Cardstock: Kraft left over from Christmas card making, Patterned paper left over from Valentine’s Day cards, white cardstock from my scrap stash.
  • Adhesive: Glue Arts GlueGlider PRO with Perma Tac adhesive refill.
  • Embellishments: Making Memories bits and pieces left from another project.
  • Ribbon: May Arts double faced Satin HA14 1-½”, Grosgrain stitched edge BH14 3/8”



Step One: Cut all your pieces out. My heart was a piece left over and it was the negative space that was left. I trimmed it down to 5-½”x5-½”. My Kraft piece is 6×6 and my white piece is 5-¼”x5-¼”.

Step Two: Cover your white piece with the ribbon that you’ve chosen.  I covered my cardstock first completely with adhesive all the way to the edges. I laid them down on an angle and side by side.



Step Three: Place the ribbon covered piece onto the kraft piece, leaving an edge around. If you’ve cut your pieces correctly this shouldn’t be a problem.

Step Four: Add some 3D dots of any kid to the backside of the heart piece and layer it over the top of the ribbon covered cardstock. This raises it and give you tons of interest.

Step Five: Add your embellishments to one corner. See below.



I really hope that you take the time to create something special for someone in your life. This one will be hanging somewhere for my daughter to find. It’s perfect to attach a lollipop to or small treat.


Thanks for coming by the blog today. Happy crafting!
