Paper Weaving Heart Cards by Kirsten Varga

Welcome to the Gelli Arts® Blog! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I have a simple project that delivers lots of impact perfect for giving to the special people in your life. Paper Weaving Heart Cards!

Weaving colorful printed papers together will be visually appealing and also have a cool texture. You’ll have fun using the gel plate to create lusciously layered papers with a large heart on them. The magic happens when you take two prints and weave them together. Check out the video below to see how!

Happy Creating!
