Stitched Valentine's Cards

Back by popular demand--hand-stitchd Valentine's cards!


Who wants to make some super cute and easy Valentine's? I made these last year and everyone really liked them.


I saw these a few years back *I think* in Parents magazine, but, alas, I could not find it on the web to provide a link. I had stored the idea in my memory for a time when my oldest child would be old enough to help. I may have jumped the gun a bit--at 3 1/2 years, she still couldn't quite do it, but we had fun together anyway. And they turned out super cute. I was going to line the insides with scrapbook paper, but she wanted to draw on the insides, so I let her. She had a great time drawing pictures of her relatives and writing her name. :)

So, ready to make some?

Step 1: Gather Supplies

The supplies are pretty basic: yarn, cardstock, a needle big enough to pull the yarn, and a heart. I just drew a heart in Word and then filled it with lines to help me keep my stitches strait.


Step 2: Punch holes


Step 3: "Sew" your yarn in


Enjoy!


 

Hope you are all having fun getting ready for Valentine's Day.

Best,

  2. I love this - so fun and creative and I'm such a sucker for stitching cards and paper (I guess it's because I'm not a sewer and that's as close as I get)!

    Anyways, I'm not sure which one of you guys left me a comment, but I appreciate it and I'm your newest follower AND I'm glad there's another scientist crafter out there too! I have a little linky set up for crafty scientist and I'd love if if you joined and added your site. You can find it here at the bottom of the page. here at the bottom of the page.

    Also, just in case you didn't know, you're a no-reply blogger so I couldn't email respond to your comment... you can find a tutorial to help you fix that here. You'll probably get lots more comments/replies to your comments from bloggers if you do that too! : )
