Welcome to you . My project for the hop is this little heart shaped luminary. I made it from a SVGcuts “Love Me Do” set. I modified the sides to be deep enough to place a tea light in. I used my favorite card stock from eCraft Diecutable Cardstock from The PaperMill Store. The pattern paper was from an assortment of papers from JoAnn's Fabrics.  I used a heart shape cut out on the front of the luminary. I love my Unity Stamps ,” Birds of a Feather” set. I knew it would be perfect for my luminary.  I stamped  it on silk shantung using my colorbox inks to make the light window. I also used my Prismacolor markers to produce the rich color tones!  I made feet from two additional heart cut outs. and punched holes and threaded cord thru to embellish my light box.

I know that everyone likes or at least might have seen “Sweethearts” candies. Well DO I have a deal for you. Leave a comment on my blog below this post, and these glass heart beads could be yours. Remember not for use around small children or pets..

Happy Valentines’ Day
