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