DIY Valentines by Katie P.

Is it just me or have DIY projects soared over the last year?  With places like Etsy and Pinterest there's plenty of inspiration.  I saw some cute printable Valentine's and thought, I can do that.  And with the help of my Gazelle, it was super easy to do!

I started by sizing my tag and creating the sentiment using the text function.  I placed the sentiment where I wanted it on the tag then changed the colors of the two items.  After inserting my paper into my Gazelle, I took out the blade housing and put in a glitter pen.  By multiplying the design then cutting by color, I was able to do all my text then replace the blade and cut the tags with ease.  Next I cut the bird peices and assembled them all.  To finish it off, I added a googly eye to the bird and some twine for the top of the tag.  I left the back open so Shelby can sign it for her friends.
All the functions of the Gazelle make creating mass projects super simple!
