First Valentine of 2018

Here is a Piggy Valentine I made that would be perfect for a lunch box addition for you little ones.

I got the idea from May May on You Tube. Click Here for the inspiration.

 Take a full sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 inch card stock and cut in half.

Then cut in half again.

You will get four Valentines.
 Score at 2 3/4  inch on the 5 1/2 inch side.
 Flip it over and make a pencil mark at 2 1/8, just a small one.
 Add the paper to your trimmer and line up with the score line and the pencil mark.
 Cut and flip over and do the same on the other side.
 I am using a heart punch for the ears, and the triangle scraps work perfectly to cut out all the ears I need.
 I thought about using an oval for the nose but then I found this scallop oval and knew I wanted that.
 This is a three circle punch I found at Hobby Lobby one day and just love it for ears and eyes.
 I used a scrap Heavy Weight black for the nostriles.

I am using scrap Heavy Weight White for the sentiment.

I cut my stamp and it did not cry, now I can use it the way I want.
 I used Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and only on the edges.

I also rounded with 1/4 inch punch the point.
 A block on top just tell it dries, it does not take long.
Decided to ink the edges with the same ink as the card stock.
 Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and dimensionals to the nose.
Google Eyes, I added the ears to the back.

Stamped the inside too

And the back, and you can see how I glue the ears
