*Antique-Style Valentine*



I saw this over at Martha Stewart & thought it was such a pretty idea for Valentines Day.

'As early as the 1790s, sweethearts exchanged "puzzle purses." In this version, a poem runs along the edges, starting outside the folded square. The text, embellished with stamped and painted designs, is revealed in stages as the card is opened.'

To make this pretty idea pop on over to Martha's *click here*
