STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS
In the Cricut Craft Room select the Valentine's Sweet Cartridge (Digital) or you can use the heart in the Ultimate Creative Series cartridge and select the heart shape. I did a variety of heart sizes ranging from 1.5-4 in the dial size (set in the options under the craft room tab). I filled the entire mat with the hearts.
In the dial size I set it to 1.25 and made sure in the tools I had relative selected. Select the love button (heart). Select the layer 1 tab and select the love button (top of heart). Select the layer 2 tab and select the love button (circles). Select the shift and make sure the layer 2 tab is selected also. Then select LOVE. Place all of these on the mat accordingly to placement of paper on mat. Repeat step 3 to cut these pieces out.
Collect a variety of reds, pink, purple and white card stock papers.
On the mat I placed my piece of card stock paper firmly down and set it loaded the mat into the expression 2. Make sure your machine is connected to your computer and press cut int he craft room screen. Go through the prompts that the craft room shows (select machine-press cut).
After the cuts are completed take unload the mat from the expression 2. Remove the paper and take off the hearts and set them aside.
Glue the pieces from step 5 together with the top of the heart onto the base heart. Then take the circle and place it in the right upper corner of heart. Lastly, paste a letter on the heart.
Take the LOVE hearts from step 5-6 and paste them on the outside of the glass container.
Take the hearts that were cut out in step 2 and add the words of how you love someone to them. Place them inside the glass container. If you would like you can save two blank hearts and paste them on top of the lid.
Then you are complete and are ready to give it to your special valentine.
