Valentine's Day

A REALLY HAND-MADE CARD

submitted by: Alyssa McDonald

 

make paper valentines cardMy sweetheart lives 12 hours away, subsequently our relationship is predominantly defined by emails, phone calls and interstate florist deliveries. This valentines I wanted to embody our communication in a card.

I make paper (although it’s so chunky you could call it cardboard) – I printed off all the emails he sent me and mushed them up in the blender – to that I added petals of flowers and rose oil that he sent me.  I made him a card from the intimate words and textures of our relationship – on the front I arranged some of the dried roses and sprinkled petals in the envelope.

When you look closely at the card – you can make out some of the writing from his emails – I wanted him to realise that I cherish the energy we spend sharing our thoughts and feelings, even though we can’t be together all the time.
