This is similar to a small paper heart that the story teller Hans Christian Andersen gave to Mathilde Orsted in 1860. It is handcut and woven with light weight stationary quality paper. I've lightly aged the whole Valentine with a tea bath to give it an antique look. It measures approximately 4"x 3 1/2". The Valentine fits snuggly in a 5" x 3 1/2" brown paper envelope. This token opens up like a little pouch and a personal note can be concealed inside.
