Few people know, but the first postcard "valentine"was born in the distant 15th century. The story tells of the imprisoned Duke of Orleans. In 1415, Charles, yearning for his wife, began to write her letters full of love. To the lovers of the epistolary genre, the idea suited the taste, and by the 18th century small hand-made heart-shaped cards became very popular. They wrote a confession of love, witticism without an addressee and even made a proposal of the hand and heart. Over time, small gifts began to be added to the cards, often made with their own hands. If the holiday is close, and you have not yet chosen a gift, in this article we offer several master classes with step-by-step photos on creating cute souvenirs for the guys for Valentine's Day. Aromatizer in a car for a loved one Probably, every girl faced with a question,what to give for Valentine's day to your beloved guy. We offer to make a small sachet, which can be used as a car perfume. This souvenir will not only demonstrate your warm feelings, but it will also be very useful. It is only necessary to choose the appropriate fragrances that the guy likes. It will take:
- A small piece of tissue (it is best to choose linen or cotton - "breathing").
- Thin felt of different shades of pink.
- Sharp scissors.
- Needle and thread.
- Sewing machine (you can sew and hands, but with the machine will be faster).
- Paper heart in the form of a heart.
- Sewing pins.
- Dry aromatic herbs (mint, lemon balm, lavender, cloves, vetiver root, cedar tree). The choice will depend only on the tastes of your boyfriend.
To decorate our sachet will be a multi-layered heart fromFeet, each layer of which will be smaller than the previous one. To do this, it will be necessary to cut out from the thick paper the curls of the largest (for the lower layer) format. In the future, you can just cut out of it with each time the hearts are of smaller size. You can do the same in another way - immediately cut out of paper several molds of different sizes. Advice! In order for you to have an ideally symmetrical heart, you need to fold a sheet of paper in half and draw on one side of the heart half, using the fold line as the central axis. Of course, the size of the heart should not exceed the size of the sachet. Cut out from the felt various shades of pink color of the workpiece and add them, as shown in the photo. We mark the central line, which divides the heart into halves. Now take a piece of cloth for the sachet and cut itit into two identical parts. In this master class this is a square, but you can make a rectangular, triangular or any other shape. We put our stack of hearts in the center of the half of the sachet and we put it on the machine along the intended middle line. Half of the sachet with sewn hearts is added with the second piece of linen fabric by the hearts inside and fasten the workpiece with pins. Stitch with the machine three sides of the square. It is necessary to carefully trim the corners from the wrong side, so that when we turn to the front, they are even and beautiful. In the resulting bag we put dry fragrantherbs or spices. You can even put dry crusts of citrus or coffee beans, previously grinding them into powder. The side of the side that is not sewn properly is folded gently. The length of the bent edge should be equal in length to the indentations on the wrong side. If you plan to hang the sachet on the rear-view mirror in the car, you should sew a decorative lace at this stage. We sew again with some beautiful seam on the front side. It only remains to remove the remains of the pencil withusing a wet cotton swab, if necessary, and the fragrant pad is ready. It is believed that men are initially harsh, and they are alien to tenderness, but in fact everyone wants to hear a few warm words and feel important and loved. In this master class, we propose to make for your beloved an original gift - a magic bag with 10 reasons for your love. It will take:
- 10 walnuts.
- Hot glue and glue gun.
- A sheet of white paper.
- Fabric (in this master class pink coarse calico).
- Cardboard is white.
- Sheet of paper pink (you can use tear-off sheets of the cube block).
- Threads with a needle.
- Satin ribbon.
- A small piece of organza or mesh for decorating the top of the pouch.
- Acrylic paints with a metallic effect (you can use nail polish).
- A tape suitable under a fabric of a shade.

Let's start creating a romantic gift with cleansingnuts. They must be carefully split in half. We will need the shell. Kernels can be eaten immediately, they will not be needed. We also remove the partitions. That's what happened in the end. Now you need to print or writebeautiful letters 10 reasons for your love. If you get more, it's even better, just do not forget to add a nutshell. Cut into thin strips and fold into neat little tubes. From pink paper we cut out 10 hearts (verysmall) or as much as you have the reasons for love. Now rolls need to be fixed with a thread and glued on top of the heart. Thus, we form all paper strips. We put each half of the walnut shell andUsing a glue gun we fasten it to the other half. To the nut you can attach a tiny bow from a satin ribbon with a bead or beads. Adhesive gun in this case is very convenient, because the glue can be applied pointwise. Finished nuts can be painted with paint. If the dimensions of the shell allow, you can also insert a small candy. The next step is to create a bag. From a white cardboard it is necessary to cut out a circle of any diameter. He served the bottom of our bag. Now from the chosen fabric we cut out two circles of slightly larger diameter than the cardboard. Now we need to sew our cardboard base on both sides with a cloth. Do not forget to unfold the fabric on both sides from both sides. Now you need to cut another piece of coarse calicowidth equal to the length of the circle of the fabric + about 1 cm at the seam. Now it is necessary to sew a piece along the length. At us the cylinder has turned out, to one side of which we sew our bottom. The upper edge of the bag do not forget to bend a little and stitch it to make it even and neat. A little deviating from the upper edge, we pass along thearound the circle with a seam, so that the edges of the bag can be pulled off. On the lower edge we sew the braid. From not so we fasten a bow and we attach in that place. Where is the string, pulling the edge of the bag. We decorate the top with a piece of organza or mesh (optional). Put the nuts in the bag. You can add a crumb-valentine, where you specify the instructions to your gift. This wonderful souvenir is universal, it can be donated not only on February 14th. Use the idea and come up with your original explanation in love.
