Honey, I Love You

NSPIRED BY a card my coworker picked up for her boyfriend, I took this rainy weekend as an opportunity to create a handmade rendition for my honey. I didn't give it to him for any special occasion but it's a cute anniversary, Valentine's Day, or just because card! I put ours up on the fridge next to our goofy photobooth pictures.

What you'll need for this project: gold glitter, Elmer's glue, a paintbrush, a blank card, a metallic gold pen, a toothpick, and a steady hand! First, lightly sketch the shape of the honey bear in the center of your card with a pencil. Using a paintbrush, carefully cover the bear with Elmer's glue, making sure not to spread any outside of the lines.

Spread glitter over the glue and dust away excess glitter to reveal a gold bear. With a toothpick, carefully remove spots for bear's eyes and nose. Use a black pen to create the bear's eyes and nose. With a metallic gold pen, write your message underneath the bear. Then present to your honey! :)
