This project promises to warm your heart just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Details
It’s a valentine! It’s stitched! It’s a stitched valentine! These are just the right size to leave in unexpected places for your valentine. With three different designs there is enough to give one to your kiddo, one to your love and one for your best pal. Or three lovers. Or two besties and Ryan Gosling.

Tools
– needle
– scissors
– pen

Materials
– card
– envelope
– gem sticker
– thread

Gather your materials. Thread your needle and knot your thread.

Coming from the backside of the card use your needle to poke a hole in the card, using the grey dots as a guide. Holding the card up to a light helps to see the dots from the backside.

Pull the thread through.

Follow the design in the dots and keep stitching.

Keep going.

At the last hole tie a large tight knot on the backside.

Cut your thread.

Slip it into the envelope and add a little gem sticker on the back to close.

Leave it in a sneaky spot. Or just hand it over (and expect a Valentine’s Day kiss!).

Thanks to our friends For the Makers for sharing the love.
