Today I am feeling pretty hyped (and extremely nervous) about this post. It’s my first DIY Freebie being posted here on Blush + Jelly. I had a lot of fun putting it together, and I really hope you all enjoy making this. Whether you love it or hate it I would like to know.
Also, please forgive me for the not so amazing pictures I posted. My photography skills are way below average so I did the best I could. Might just go outside next time to get some natural light.
These little Valentine’s Day scratch off tickets are super easy to make. Here is a list of the materials you will need:
-Cardstock paper of your choice
-Scissors (or paper cutter)
-Clear sticky plastic film (what you use for book covers)
-Acrylic paint in any color you fancy
Step 1: Download and print out Valentine’s Day scratch off ticket. I suggest using some type of cardstock, feel free to use any color you like.
Step 2: Cut out tickets. Due to my poor scissor handling skills I use my handy dandy paper cutter for a nice straight edge. If you are gifted with the ability to cut straight using scissors I envy you.
Step 3: Write a special message on the pink heart. Make it something sweet like “Free bear hugs all day!” or “Your turn to pick the movie”.
Step 4: Get the sticky plastic film and cut either in the shape of a heart or a square. Once you cut it peel and stick on top of your secret message.
Step 5: Get your paintbrush and acrylic paints out and paint over the sticky paper. A few coats should do the job. Let it dry. If message isn’t concealed then just dab on another layer, and if you’re feeling creative use more than one color!
Step 6: You’re done! Now just place it inside an envelope and deliver your special message.
Hope you enjoy making these scratch off tickets.
