Valentines Day Swag

So we have arrived in TX. We love it here. And I have now found a totally awesome crafting buddy! Yay for me ;)

The other day we ran to Joann's and brainstormed in the isles to try and come up with a really cute valentines day swag. Something not to red or pink but totally cute!

Here is what we did.

You need:

2 pieces of card stock. We got the kind you can sand. Yeah totally awesome stuff!
1 piece of scrapbook paper

We cut the burlap into 8 squares 4" wide and 5 1/2" tall. Then we folded a 1" flap and sewed them over this is where you will pull your string through to hang it.

Next we cute a heart in the felt. We used a cookie cutter to gage the size. We used the outside of the cutter for a bigger heart made of felt, the inside of the cookie cuter for a heart made out of card and then just cut a smaller heart out of scrapbooking paper.

We then, using our sewing machines, sewed the hearts together and into the burlap. Way Cute!!!

Last I just strung them together and hung it on the mantle. So cute. Not to red or to pink but just enough to know that it is Valentines.

What do you think? Cute?
