Craft Tutorial: Kewpie Valentine

Today I've been experimenting with cupcake holders for Valentine cards. I cut out paper cupcake holders into different size hearts and stacked them together. Then I glued the cupcake holders to some kewpie clip art hearts I found via Pokey Patch. I like how the Valentines ended up having a vintage feel to them. I could see these used to adorn packages or made on a smaller scale for a brooch. Lots of possibilities.
