Project #124: Valentine love message handkerchief
With valentine on it’s way and leaving my husband and kids behind for 5 weeks I wanted to give a personal soft gift…..
I’ve made one for my husband and one for my kids….
What you'll need:
*adhesive flock foil
*punch or you can draw your own design
Step 1: to make the handkerchief
Draw your design on the non adhesive side of the flock foil and cut it out and/or use a punch.
I printed out my drawing and just went over it with a pencil so you see the marks in the foil and you can easily cut it out.
Follow the instructions of the manufacturer. Normally you have to do the following steps: Put the non adhesive glossy layer on top, put a piece of baking paper between the flock foil and iron. Push for +/- 30 seconds. Let it cool down. Take off the plastic layer of your flock foil. Ready
Step 2: to make the origami envelope
I used a paper of 21x21cm. If you have available it’s better to use a bigger size of paper, for example 36x36cm, so your envelope will be bigger and easier to use.
Fold the paper in half. Crease and unfold. Follow step 1-15
Make it twice and insert the second one into the first.
Write or stamp your message inside the envelope.
Fold your handkerchief and put it in the origami envelope.
Perfect valentine gift or a goodbye present for your beloved ones!
