DIY: I Carry Your Heart on a Kraft Card

I carry your heart

Perhaps like us, you are already carrying around photos or polaroids of you and your loved one. How else could you be carrying a lil piece of your loved one around, to remind you of their ever assuring presence and your ever lasting longing? I took a little hint from one of our favourite poems [i carry your heart with me (i carry it in] by E. E Cummings, and created a lil something for Galen and I.

3. Sit your loved one down (blindfold optional but highly advisable)
4. Stamp your thumbprints, overlapping to form a heart shape

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

Galen and I have this thing for materialising poems and quotes into something tangible. I certainly think this is such a poignant visualization of the poem, ain't it? And a pleasant surprise too, when you removed the blindfold from your loved on. Warmness oozing from within the heart is almost a guarantee.
