Valentine’s Heart Transparency Tutorial

I really Love transparencies! They are so simple to make and yet so effective:) I have just made two little hearts on this one but you can really be creative and also make quite intricate designs that look amazing. I am going to make a few more of these and stand them all along our mantlepiece for our Valentine’s dinner on the 14th.

Materials:
Red card
Scissors
Wax wrap paper
Pencil
Glue
Candle
Matches

Fold the sides of the card in towards the middle.

Draw two hearts or whatever design you would like and cut it out.

Cut out your wax wrap paper and stick on the inside of your card.

Stand up your card and place a little candle or two behind your transparency and you will have a very effective Valentine ornament.
Have fun:)

    Very nice! That would also work with those tiny tea candles that run on batteries for those of us with cats in the house who are afraid to light real candles :o)
