Paint a sheet of watercolour paper (180 g) with pink watercolour paint. Brush on the paint a little unevenly, leaving white streaks in between strokes. For a lighter shade, dilute the paint with water.
Use a figure punch to punch out hearts.
Cut up to about 15 mm down the centre of each heart. Fold one small paper tab over the other, shaping the heart into a small bowl. Apply a dab of glue between the tabs and glue in place. Cut off the small points at the bottom of the heart.
Dip an old toothbrush in gold Hobbylack. Aim the bristles at the hearts and run a finger over the bristles to apply a spattering of gold paint. Let dry.
Last, write guests names with a gold pen along one side of the heart.
Use watercolours to paint beautiful place cards for weddings and parties! These charming heart cards are easy to make, and simply stunning as place cards and decorations for a table setting. Plus, all of your guests will know where to sit at dinner and can take home a little souvenir from the celebration. Remember to protect the table before you begin painting. We also recommend testing the Hobbylack spattering technique on a piece of scrap paper before you begin working on all of the pretty hearts.
