Love Token

Love Token with Pink Pearls and Glass Beads

Gale of Paperwhimsy has made wonderful Love Token  forms based on 18th century Miniature Eye Love Tokens.

I’ve written a how to in my January Paperwhimsy blog post, including a short photo tutorial. Perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day.  I’m in love with love tokens! How about you?

There is a slideshow at the bottom of this post.
