XO Valentine Wall Art. Use the alphabet punch board and pretty DCWV floral paper to create this sweet Valentine’s Day XO wall art.
I was perusing Pinterest the other day, and found this beautiful card from Hallmark. I knew I wanted to re-create it to make a beautiful piece of art for my home for Valentine’s Day.
One of my goals for 2021 is to use what I have for crafting. That doesn’t mean I will never take a trip to the craft store, but I want to challenge myself to use the tools and supplies I have to create. So, as I was thinking about making this project, I knew I could make something beautiful with the We R Memory Keepers alphabet punch board and a pretty paper stack from DCWV, Inc.

How to Make XO Valentine Wall Art
- Pink Cardstock 8 1/2″ x 11″
- White Cardstock
- DCWV Botanical Beauty Paper Stack
- Alphabet Punch Board
- Scallop Circle Nesting Punches
- Clear Cut Heart Punch
- Hot Glue Gun
- Detail Scissors
To start creating my art, I cut a sheet of white cardstock into four 3″ x 5″ pieces using my paper trimmer.
Then, using the instruction book as my guide, I made two X’s and two O’s using the alphabet punch board.
I attached them to the pink cardstock with adhesive foam dots.
Next, I got to decorating!
To create some of the “flowers” I used the scallop circle nesting punch. I used different patterns of the floral papers to create layered flowers. To make them look more 3D, I folded them to make them stick up more. I used hot glue to attach the three layers together, and to attach them to the letters.
I also fussy cut some flowers. To fussy cut simply means to carefully cut around a design or image. I find using small, sharp scissors to work the best for this step. Be patient, and go slow.
I ended up cutting out a floral stem with flowers, a flower head, and a butterfly. Attach the shapes with hot glue.
Lastly, I used my small heart punch to create some hearts out of the same patterned paper. I folded the hearts in half, and attached them using hot glue on the fold.
I love how this project turned out. It was simple, used the supplies I had, and is the perfect start for my Valentine’s Day decorating.
