I love Valentine's Day. How 'bout you? I gotta say that even before I had a "Valentine" to spend the day with, I always enjoyed this heart-filled, pink, red and white, some-what-of-a "Hallmark holiday" holiday. I love the candy, the flowers, the cheap foil cartoon character Valentines, and the pretty decorations. Growing-up my parents always made it special. My mom and dad always took my brother and I out to dinner with them then we came home and devoured some delicious dessert (usually chocolate) that my mom made, and exchanged Valentines. My mom and dad still have the cards made by my brother and I displayed proudly and I still cherish the ones they made for me.
So with this holiday that truly delights me only a week away, I figured this past weekend was a good time to craft up a quick little heart decoration.
I started with some pretty cardstock....
And free-handed hearts on the back. Making a stencil and tracing it for everyone would have been too time-comsuming and too perfect.
Then I cut them all out.
I used my mini hole punch to put to little holes in each heart and threaded a big 'ole needles with some embroidery floss.
Then I simply strung them along the floss.
I hope you all enjoyed this quick little tutorial. Have a really wonderful Wednesday!
