Mini Valentine's Day Cards

Hello! I wanted to share how you can easily transform ANY of your paper bits and leftover pieces into some fun Valentine's cards. For these cards, I used five papers from the retired Micro Basics collection. You could easily swap those papers out for any of the papers from the Spectrum Series, the Artisan Cardstock, or any other collection.
Each card is a simple, pre-made 3x3" card that I got at a large craft store. The strips are simply cut with a pair of fringe scissors.
To make the fringe layers, simply take a strips of 3x12" paper and create your fringe with the scissors the entire way down the strip.
Once your strips are made, use strong adhesive to attach each layer to the card. If you let the extra hang off the edge, you can cut all of the layers at once and make them all even. 
Once the cards were all created using the various layers and colors, you can easily add some fun details to make them match the holiday or event you want them to. 
For these cards, I used a Diamond Press Love Tags Coordinating Stamps and Die set.
The stamped and die cut images are colored with some Tombow markers,  stamped with black and colored inks, and tied with twine.
With this method, any paper could be turned into Valentine's paper! You could also swap out the stamped and cut images for any holiday. 
The smaller size are also perfect for children's Valentines. They will fit into any of those cute Valentine's boxes. Or, you could decorate one of your own like this one
