Heart Shaped Pouches

I saw these on BHG today and I think they are so cute. They would be easy enough to make with children too. Hanging heart pouches can hold any type of treats, from a cluster of posies to a handful of candy. Here's how to make them. Trace two same-size heart shapes onto pretty paper or card stock; cut out. Cut more hearts in graduated sizes from contrasting paper, and use spray adhesive (made for sewing) or a simple running stitch to attach to the front of the pouch. Stack the two main hearts with right sides facing out. Starting at one side near the top, use a sewing machine to zigzag stitch around the edge, leaving top open. Trim edges as needed. Punch holes near top of pouch. Thread ribbons through; knot to secure. You dont have to use the sewing machine you can easily use glue instead. It will look just as lovely. So CUTE!!
