Romantic hanging cloud - Valentines day craft idea0
Hi everyone its Stacey,
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought I would craft a sweet hanging decoration for a loved one. Please see my step-by-step guide below to create your own cloud mobile.
- Ribbon – colour of your choice
- Hot glue gun
- Value white card 210gsm
- Intensive red card 160gsm
- Heart craft punch
- Clear fishing wire
I uploaded my cutting file and began cutting on the machines setting for card. Top tip - it's always good to double up on your cut.
I bought my craft punch from Hobbycraft for £4 but if you hurry, they've got them on sale for £2!
When all your hearts and clouds are cut, you can begin to assemble them to the wire. I cut three different lengths of wire for hanging.
When you've glued all your hearts and clouds to the wire, you can secure each hanging strip using your hot glue gun again, to the inside of the cloud. You'll need to cut a rectangular strip of card to sit behind the front cloud to make the writing pop. Take a piece of ribbon of your desired length and glue to back of cloud creating a loop. To hide all the gluing and backing paper, you'll need to attach another cloud on the reverse. Hey presto, a lovely hanging decoration.
