How to make a “You Warm my Heart” Valentine’s Day Mug.

Some girls may want roses and expensive gifts for Valentine’s Day.

Not this girl. Give me something thoughtful and sweet, and I’ll be happy.

(Oh, and a little chocolate never hurts.)

How to make a "You warm my heart" mug using StyleTechCraft Vinyl.

While shopping at my local Dollar Tree…

I found this simple red and white mug*; I was drawn to its color because it is more barn red than fire engine red.

I decided to make a fun Valentine’s mug using my favorite StyleTechCraft Adhesive Vinyl.

Did you know, Dollar Tree* has a lot of glass and ceramic items that are perfect for adding vinyl?

  • Lay the transfer paper onto the mug. Since it has a curved surface, start from the center of the words and rub one side at a time using a vinyl scraper tool. The tool allows you to smooth the image and eliminate air bubbles.
  • Remove Vinyl Transfer Tape*.
  • Line up hearts over the words and apply the vinyl hearts onto the mug.

Allow the vinyl to cure on the mug for four days before use. (Hand Wash Only)

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

Directions:

  • My heart ornaments are approximately 4″ x 4″ with a 1¼” x 1¼” heart opening in the center.
  • Paint both sides of two heart ornaments with red paint.
  • Place thin strips of removable tape* across the heart ornament.  Alternate between thicker and thinner strips.
  • Rub your finger over the tape to make sure that the tape* is securely on the ornament and has no gaps.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Paint inside the stripes with a thin coat of pink acrylic paint.  Be careful not to apply the paint too thick.   Only one thin coat of paint is needed.
  • Remove painter’s tape.
  • Allow the paint to fully dry before continuing to the next step.

Stripes are good too.

If you like stripes better than plaid, you can skip the next step.

  • Next, add strips of Removable Tape* vertically over the heart.
  • Make sure the tape is flat with no gaps.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Paint over the heart with a thin coat of white paint.
  • Carefully remove the tape.  Allow the paint to dry.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Using a Sanding Block* lightly sand the heart ornament. Sanding smooths the woodgrain and helps to hide any little imperfections.
  • Wipe with a clean cloth.

  • For a little extra pop of gold.  
  • Edge the sides of the heart ornament with a Chisel Point Gold Leaf Pen*.
  • Don’t forget to add a little gold to the center heart.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • On the back of both hearts, add craft glue around the center heart.  Place a small piece of clear acetate* over the heart opening.
  • On the back of the plaid heart, place strips of double-sided adhesive craft foam* around the center heart.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Place heart sprinkles inside the craft foam over the acetate.
  • Remove the protective coating from the craft foam and carefully line up the second heart to close.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Loop a long piece of white yarn through the top hole of the ornament.
  • Add craft glue to the ends of the yarn and twist the fibers to make them tight. 
  • That makes it easier to string the beads.
  • I used gold beads left-over from a Christmas project and strung them onto the yarn.
  • Create a yarn tassel and tie it to the end of the beaded yarn.

Place the Plaid Shaker Heart with your Winter Decor to add a little Valentine’s Love.

Wood Snowflake Ornament

Directions:

  • Lightly Sand the Wood Circle with a sanding block to smooth the grain.  Wipe the circle to clean off the dust.
  • Paint with acrylic paint.  To create the ombre background, I started with the darkest shade of paint and continued by adding white paint.
  • Rub the toothbrush into a small amount of white paint.  Flick the bristles of the paintbrush to sprinkle white flecks of paint onto the background of the wood circle.
  • Paint the wood snowflake with white acrylic paint.
  • Paint the wood words with silver acrylic paint.
  • Glue the Snowflake onto the center of the wood circle.
  • Glue the words onto the middle of the snowflakes.
  • Adhere white enamel circles onto the ends of the snowflake tips to cover the holes.
  • Drill a small hole on the top of the circle for hanging.

Directions:

  • Paint both sides of the Wood Trucks with acrylic paint.

Unless you are steady-handed and can paint a perfect circle, here’s a trick I used.

  • Cut a circle the same size as the truck wheel. Cut the circle in half and use it as a mask to paint the top of the wheel. I used removable vinyl to cut my circle.

I added words to a plain ornament to create a “cut your own” sign.

  • I used Wood Glue* to glue the truck.  I needed glue that would give me enough time to line up the box and still be sturdy enough to hold the weight.
  • Allow time for the glue to dry before picking up the finished truck.

  • Decorate the body of the truck using a craft pine stem as garland. 
  • Glue small bows and beads onto the garland.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

If you like the look of old embossed tin, the Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket

is a simple project to create.  (easy to follow instructions below)

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket

I’m always up for a new crafty challenge,

so, when asked if I wanted to try the colored aluminum foils

from K & S Precision Metals, of course, I said yes.

These thick colored aluminum foils are not like your mother’s aluminum foil.

They are thick enough to bend and manipulate but thin enough to be able to cut with scissors.

And you don’t have to worry about cuts like from thicker metals. (this is fun stuff)

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

I could have used the metal as it comes, but I wanted it to be slightly thicker, so I double it up with cardstock in the middle.  It also helped it hold the embossed shape.

Directions:  

  • I used an unfolded small white envelope as my pattern.
  • Measure and cut a piece of colored foil slightly larger than the unfolded envelope.
  • To add adhesive on the back of the foil, place the foil colored-side up on the Xyron Creative Station®*Turn the handle of the Creative Station to run the foil through.  As it runs through, it adds complete adhesive covering on the underneath side of the foil.
  • Place the foil onto a piece of white cardstock the same size.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • If you’re not artistically inclined, you can easily find a swirly scroll pattern to print and use as a pattern.
  • Place the foil with the cardstock side up onto a soft surface.  Tape the swirly scroll pattern onto the back of the cardstock.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Using medium to firm pressure, use a small ball stylus* to trace around the design to transfer it to the foil.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Remove the pattern from the back of the cardstock.
  • Trace around the opened envelope onto the back of the cardstock.
  • Cut the envelope shape using scissors.
  • Cut a second piece of foil the same size as the first and repeat the adhesive and embossing process, except do not add the foil to the cardstock. Place this piece of foil onto the back of the cardstock and retrim the envelope shape.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Use a ruler and bone folder to mark your envelope fold lines.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Paint over the foil with white multi-surface acrylic paint to give the pocket a brushed denim look.
  • Make sure to paint in one direction only.
  • Once the paint has dried, lightly sand over the embossed areas with a sanding block.
  • The sanding makes the embossed areas stand out.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Glue the edges of the pocket using rapid fuse all purpose adhesive*.
  • Tie a 1″ piece of ribbon around the envelope pocket.  I added a little bling using a broken silver barrette.
  • Cut a thin slice of floral foam* and place it inside the pocket.  Stick small flower stems into the floral foam.  (Both the floral foam and the flower stems were from Dollar Tree*.)
  • Punch two small holes in the envelope and add a piece of twine for hanging.
  • Add the embossed pocket to the middle of a boxwood wreath for a simple and elegant wreath decoration.
