    Write a little note on the paper you cut out!

    I made a few of these.

You can get really creative and sweet and you don't have to reserve this for valentines day :)

Harmini, I wrote on your wall shortly after publishing mine and you said it was fine. Like I said I had no idea you had a similar tutorial until after.
