Altered Valentine Tag Project

I am a big fan of the show Creative Juice on HGTV/DIY.  And I found this cute Altered Valentine Gift Tag on Cathie Filian's blog. Even if Valentine's Day has past, one could probably "alter it" for any celebration.

If you are interested in the other projects she posts on her site, please visit


Mod Podge matte
Folkart paint 437 lipstick red
Folkart Extreme Glitter red
1 wood heart
1 wood or chipboard tag
decorative paper – 2 styles
Foam paintbrushes
Hot Glue or tacky glue
Paper flowers


1. Paint the wood heart red. Topcoat with 3 coats of extreme glitter. Allow to dry.

2. Trace around the tag onto the decorative paper. Cutout the shape. Apply Mod Podge to the tag and the back of the paper. Place the paper on the tag. Apply more mod podge to the top, press with your finger until smooth. Apply more Mod Podge is necessary. Smooth your brush strokes.

3. Cut a heat shape that is slightly larger than the wood heart. Glue the heart and paper flowers to the tag using Mod Podge.

4. Once everything is dry, hot glue the heart in the center and add rhinestones. Tie a ribbon through the hole on the tag.
