Handmade Valentine Cards

Here's a quick Valentine card with a personal touch -- it's cute and takes just a few minutes to construct!!

Here's what you'll need:
Computer and printer (optional)
Fabric heart (I used leftovers from this project)
Glue stick
Needle and thread

Using your computer's word-processing program, design and print off the text for your card.  I went the simple route and just chose the word "love" (colored in red), but you can be as elaborate as you want.  If you have super-cute handwriting (which I don't), you can do this part by hand.

Put some glue on the back of your heart, then stick it to the front of your card; this will hold it in place while you sew and prevent you from tearing out your hair in frustration.

Using your needle and thread, do a simple stitch around the heart.  Extra bonus: use a pushpin to poke holes around the perimeter of your fabric heart beforehand to create a template for sewing.  I didn't do this, but it would have been easier to sew if I had.

Add a personal note inside your card, then find an envelope that fits and send your card to a special someone.

Easy as pie!!
