Here’s another handmade Valentine for you to make for your friends or special someone! Did you see the DIY Liquor and Hearts gift yet? I was inspired by a palm reading book that I got at a thrift store. I love giving unique Valentine’s cards and this one you can interpret however you want, because, just like fingerprints, every palm is unique!

What You Need:
- A piece of regular white paper
- Dark tea and/or coffee
- A lighter or lit candle
- Pen or pencil
- Red pen or pencil
- Red ribbon
- Crumple and un-crumple your piece of paper to age it.
- Age your paper a step further by dunking it in a pan filled with brewed tea or coffee – don’t let it soak because it will fall apart if it’s in the water for too long. let the paper dry completely.
- Age your paper more by tearing the straight edges and scorching the torn edges in the candle flame. **Don’t let the paper catch fire too much and blow it out if it flames. Do this step near a sink just in case.
- Trace the shape of your hand on the paper and fill in the lines of your hand.
- Write the meaning of each line on your hand to predict feelings of love.
- Roll it up, tie it with a ribbon and deliver it to someone special!
