The heart is the quintessential symbol for love during Valentine’s. It also symbolizes the significance of giving your heart to someone. A heart being pierced by Cupid’s arrow means when someone gives their heart, they always run the risk of being rejected or hurt in the end.
Cupid is a small mischieveous angel that has his roots in Roman mythology. Cupid was the son of Venus — the Roman goddess of love. It is said that anyone hit by Cupid’s arrow did not die, but rather fell in love.
This homemade heart box with Cupid, rose, feathers, pearls and ribbons is a pretty and elegant Valentine gift of its own indeed.
I hope this project will inspire you to try making some altered projects. See the creator’s page:
