Hello Kiran

I am not sure what the symbols of love in India are, but in my world it is hearts and flowers. Valentines cards usually have hearts and flowers on them, and expressions of love as a sentiment.

Last year I made a Valentine's card using the faux metal technique and you can also see I added glittered embossing powder to one of the hearts. Does this idea appeal to you?

One year I made a Romantic Chipboard Album for Valentine's Day. I can add to that album every year, so it is becoming a lovely keepsake.

You could also make a beautiful decorated box and give your fiancee a lovely gift, such as special chocolates, sweets she loves, a beautiful scarf or even jewelery.

Also check out some other ideas in the 3-d Papercraft section of papercraftcentral.com. You may like some of the ideas linked to that page.

I hope these ideas help you get started making a special project to mark a special day in your relationship :) If you make her something unique, I am sure it will have a wonderful impact!

Let me know what you make. I would love to see a picture of your card or gift box.

Susan
