In this tutorial I teach you to make a special card for Valentine's Day! o Valentine's Day decorated with two clay birds that give volume to the cover.

Table of Contents


To make the cards with the clay birds you will need the following materials:

  • Card
  • Polymer clay of the following colors: purple, yellow and black
  • Red marker
  • Heart-shaped fimo bar
  • Fimo blade
  • Clay knife
  • Awl
  • Instant adhesive

Step by step

Let's start by doing the clay birds and then we will take care of the rest of the decoration of the card.

To make the body Take a piece of purple clay from the birds, make a ball and then roll it with the palm of the hand slightly inclined towards the little finger. In this way you will get it to sharpen a little more on one side than on the other and you will be able to make the shape of egg. Flatten it a little, also with the palm of your hand, never with the part of the fingers, to leave fewer traces.

To make the peak you need a ball of yellow clay, roll it on one side with your index finger and you will create a drop. Glue it to the center of the bird's body.

We are going to put the eyesTo do this, simply make two holes with an awl and insert two black balls into them.

Our alas They are also two drops, so take two purple balls and roll them on one side as you did with the pick. Flatten them and glue them to the sides of the bird with the beak of the drop down.

Only the pins. You need two yellow balls, roll them back and forth through the center, so you will make a line. With the knife make two marks, and glue the legs under the bird. So you will have it finished.

Now that you know how to make a bird, make your partner exactly the same, and glue them side by side, closer to the head than to the feet.

Glue your birds on the card you want to use, and you can decorate it. I have painted a heart about the birds with a red marker.

To finish the decor, I have cut one fimo bar shaped like a heart, and I have glued them all over the card with instant adhesive.

And this is the result.
