Design Tips

Tamara Tripodi - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  1. 3D foam gives dimension to the Valentine’s.. I love using 3D adhesive foam!
  2. For the standing daisy card, use the blank layer hat goes over the back for your kiddos to write cute messages to their friends!
  3. Glitter paper really helps bring these to life!
  4. Try using some other fun SVG collections to create your very own themed Valentine’s!
  5. I love using wire to make diecuts ’fly’ such as the butterfly!

I truly hope you ’loved’ my project and feel inspired to create your own simple Valentine’s with your children, grandchildren, little-ones, etc. These don’t take a lot of steps and you can easily make several in a day! And what child wouldn’t LOVE these? Especially filled with yummy treats! Enjoy!
