Intro: Microscope Geek Valentine
Here is a Valentine's Day card for the lab geek in your life from Chemists to Materials Engineers and beyond. This is a really quick and easy project with a printer and scrapbooking supplies.
Adhesive (tape or glue)
Paper cutter or scissors
Step 1: Find & Print Picture
Search for "Microscope Heart" and this picture should come up at http://www.visualphotos.com/image/2x2681361/broken_heart_under_microscope
Print out the Picture (Two per page for a quarter card, one per page for a half sheet card). The example is a quarter sheet card and how to print two sheets per page is shown in a pictures.
Cut the picture out I used a paper cutter you can use scissors but the lines will not be as straight.
The picture on the card alone was boring so I added a boarder/frame.
I taped/glued the picture onto the blue background and used one of the lines on the paper cutter to cut the frame out.
Glue the (framed) picture on the front of the card and write or print "I love you and all of your details!" on the inside.
I used a permanent marker but you could use scrap booking markers or any other pen.
You could also print this off on the card if you wanted it to look nicer. I wanted it to be personal so I hand wrote it.
