Cupid’s armor.

February 6, 2014

I don’t know why Valentine’s Day is my muse. I really don’t. Maybe because I came to love the day since I get chocolate and flowers and have another excuse to cook a great dessert (while my boyfriend makes the main course). Maybe that’s it. Or hearts. Who doesn’t like them?

Or maybe I was just hit by cupid? Maybe that’s it. If you look at cupid’s armor that’s now on display in our living room, I certainly convinced my guests.

For today’s tutorial I made a tiny display of what looks like cupid’s armor. (Get the pun? Cupid’s amor, cupid’s armor. I’m hilarious.)

Fold the red paper, draw 3 little hearts on it and cut them out.

Take the 3 toothpicks and wrap a piece of gold wire around it. Push it to one end and stick the hearts to the other. Cut three pieces off the feather and make them a little smaller.
