Making a love letter look good!

The key to a love letter is to handwrite it so it is truly personal and shows care and attention. But that doesn’t mean it has to be blue writing on a lined piece of white paper. Be creative and have some fun with presenting your letter.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

©      Use different coloured pens to write with, or even try crayons, pencils, paints or textas instead. Even glitter glue can be used for a sparkling effect!

©      Write the letter on beautiful paper and place it in a matching envelope. If you have the time and knowledge, making some paper yourself has an even bigger impact

©      Put the letter into a document or photo frame so it can be on display

©      Create a scrapbooking page around your letter – add stickers, photos and memorabilia of you relationship around your words

©      Fold the letter into a different shape, such as a love heart

©      Surround your letter with photos of the two of you together and then frame or laminate it all as a display of your love

©      Print a large photo of the two of you or yourself and write the letter on top of it. Note you will need to print a pale photo or print it as a watermark on the page or your letter won’t show well enough to read

©      Cut out paper as if to make a paper box and then write your letter on the cut out. You can then create the box and fill it with some chocolates or other gift

©      If you’re writing is really hard to read, consider have someone else copy your words in calligraphy which looks beautiful and certainly worthy of a frame or other presentation

©      Write your letter out and then cut the page into a few pieces so your lover will have a jigsaw to put together first. Make this more fun by hiding each piece in a different place, such as in a box of chocolates, a gift box, a lingerie drawer, a champagne glass and your pocket.

©      Create a special frame for your letter by cutting out a big pink or red cardboard heart and sticking your letter in the middle. The heart can be decorated with lace, stickers, glitter or anything else that takes your fancy

©      For a very short letter, write it in icing on top of a cake! Have a paper copy for your lover to keep as well! Alternatively, write it on rice paper which is edible and can be placed on top of a cake.

©      Use fabric pens/paints and write your letter on a hanky, tea towel, tee shirt or other cloth item for a letter that lasts!
