Valentine's Cards


Woo hoo! I've never been a huge fan of Valentine's Day, but ever since I started baking/crafting I get really excited whenever there's an occasion to gift treats and gifts away :)

I want to make something to give away this year. Last year I made these Felt Fortune Cookies that I found on Martha Stewart's site and filled them with a happy valentine's day "fortune" and a pair of earrings I made. I'm into the idea of doing something cute like that this year too but I'm short on funds as you can imagine.

So what I did was go into my 'craft cabinet' haha, I'm such a nerd!! I have the following things already so I decided to do a little cut & paste (and very little stitch).

Mini Craft Cards & Envelopes from MUJI (you can use any kind of card stock)
1 Sheet of Red Felt
1 Sheet of Pink Felt
Craft Glue
Scissors
Needle
Yarn or Thread

I cut out hearts in both pink and red. I also cut out rectangles long enough to stitch the hearts onto. I tried different things too, cutting half a heart in pink and the other half in red. I tried sewing the heart to the card, and gluing them as well. I cut out conversation bubbles and put hearts in them. Here are 2 of the cards, I'll post more pics as I make more.




Now, I just need to do some baking so I have some treats to give away with these :)
