Craft: Heat Reveal Love Letters (and free printables!)

Heat Reveal Love Letters printed on three colours, and a pile of cookies.

I cannot remember a date to save my life.

If you are anything like me, the sudden arrival of Valentine’s day will have surprised you. I was still convinced it was drifting somewhere in the misty future, maybe next week or something. But no. It’s tomorrow.

My silly, soft-hearted self had such indulgent plans for Valentine’s day; a beautiful home-cooked meal of 3 courses, some over-sweet heart-shaped dessert, all eaten by candlelight, a single red rose in a tall glass between us. These lovely plans have gone completely awry due to the inevitable and expectable passing of time. A passing that, in spite of the best efforts of diaries and calendars, continues to catch me off guard.

For people who are like me, meet the heat reveal love letter; an endearing love letter with an invisible ink twist!

You know the ones, with planners and diaries, inevitably handmade and filled with perfect lines of beautiful handwriting in neat black ink.

I am not one of those people. I mean, I have diaries and planners and to-do lists, but no organisation. My papers are permanently lost, I can never find them. At least, not until after the rabbits have eaten the most important bits.

I’m trying, again, to make myself one of the organised people, which is much easier since I made these.

I would like to point out we don't usually eat that many wedges in a week. It's just that we appear to have a preoccupation with them since I found a new recipe.

Aren’t they adorable? I’m a little bit in love with the bright blue edges.
