No jibber jabber from me today, just a few pictures.
I revisited the paperweights I made for Christmas and used Valentine’s Day images to create some nice, weighty, non-cheesy Valentine’s Day presents.
For a detailed step-by-step for making these (and a lot more jibber jabber), see my post on how to make your own paperweights. Today, I’m just sharing a few more options for images to put inside…
Give your loved one your heart this year. Captured and encased in a glass dome paperweight, ha ha…
Two different options here. I can’t quite decide which one I prefer at the moment.
A relief from business
This image really made me smile: a little Bob Cratchit type man, sitting and reading a Valentine’s letter instead of a financial report (or, at least, that’s what I imagine he normally reads). Image found from Clip Art Etc: Valentine’s day.
Finally, I think this is my favourite (and most romantic) idea: a paperweight with a significant location displayed. You could use the place you first met, went on your first date, got married etc.
I used a vintage London map here, but you could always just use an ordnance survey map, or whatever’s easier to lay your hands on.
And just because I particularly like this idea, here’s the side view as well. Graphic for this found on the Graphics Fairy blog: vintage London map.
So, tell me, what would you put inside a paperweight for your Valentine?
