A Graphics Fairy Valentine

I’ve been feeling like the Valentine’s Day version of Scrooge since I don’t decorate for Valentine’s Day.  Well, I used to, when my kids were younger, but I really did it for them.


I had been saving some of the images that Karen over at The Graphics Fairy has offered with a Valentine’s Day theme and figured I should do a little something with them.

I printed out some of her sheet music graphics and these cuties.





I have about 100 decks of cards in my house.  I’m not sure why, but they came in handy for this project.  I took some of the Hearts cards and Mod Podged the music sheet graphics {cut to size} to the back of the cards.



Once that dried, I took the Valentine graphics, cut to allow a little bit of the music to show, and Mod Podged them on top of the cards.


When that all dried, I used a hole punch to punch a hole in the top of each card to slip some ribbon through. 





There’s me done for Valentine’s Day!

Hi Kathy,
These are adorable!! I might need to make a few of these. My husband put a deck of cards in my Christmas stocking this year (I think he was at that point where he was just grabbing anything off of the shelves at Walmart to give to me) but I figured I could use them for an art project. And this is perfect for that! I love how you hung them on the candles too, so sweet!

These are so cute!! I would have never thought to use cards! Great idea!

I don't do very much for Valentine's Day either...I need to get on that!

Have a great week!

I don't decorate for Valentines either. Glad you saw those chairs, maybe you can find a spot for one of them too. I thought they were really pretty & a good buy.

These are so cute. They're a great way to add a little Valentine fun to your decor.

What a great idea to use playing cards! They're a great weight--and we always seem to have part of a deck lying around. No good for playing, but they would be great for this.

I've never printed anything from The Graphics Fairy--you've energized me to go there and take a closer look. Thanks for the inspiration!
