This year, I’ve joined the “Create with Cricut Challenge”–which pretty much means they’re going to throw a material at me and I’m going to have to come up with something crafty. January’s material is felt! And being Valentines Day soon and all, I though it might be nice to make up a Love Letters 5-minute Valentine with my Cricut Maker.
See what I did there? Love letters…the I and the U with a heart? Yeah…sometimes I only amuse myself.
BUT, it’s still a cute idea even if it’s punny and if you want to use the letters to spell out LOVE or the recipient’s name, that would be even more perfect.
Love Letters 5 Minute Valentine Materials
- 3 Colors of stiff felt
- Gold Cricut foil iron-on
- Hot Glue
- Love Letters project in Cricut Design Space
- Velcro coins (like these)
The color combination is really up to you–these would look wonderful in pale blue and red as well!
After you have your materials together, open up the project file in Design Space by clicking here. Everything you need is here! If you want to do a different word or name, now’s the time to make that customization. Click “Make It” when you’re ready and cut your pieces out. I used the rotary attachment to cut out my felt on the Cricut pink mats.
The “Love Letters” mat needs to cut out of iron on vinyl. I love the gold foil on everything–but red foil would have been great!
After you weed the gold foil iron-on, put it in the center of the cut out envelope.
Iron it on, or use your super awesome Cricut EasyPress to adhere the gold foil.
Use a bead of hot glue on both flaps to create the envelope.
Add a velcro dot to the underside of the scalloped flap to get the envelope to close.
Don’t forget to tuck your letters inside!
And it’s ready for giving. Pure love!
