1) Select the papers you like for the background heart and front pocket heart. Cut the background heart about one inch smaller than the felt heart. Ink the edges of the paper heart.
2) Next cut another heart from patterned paper. Cut heart in half that when placed over background heart it will form a pocket. Ink edges of the heart. If you have a sewing machine…using a heavy duty needle stitch the top paper heart onto the background paper heart. Stitch only along outside edges of heart leaving middle open for pocket. If you don’t have a sewing machine…consider handstitching or simply glue the hearts together adhering along the edge.
3) Cut a strip of paper from the striped paper. Use the Fiskars border punch to make a decorative edge. Ink the bottom edge and then adhere the paper strip onto heart pocket top edge. Next using the ribbon adhesive, add decorative ribbon to heart edge. Decorate with puffy heart and brad.
4) Using the scallop heart punch, punch out 20-24 hearts. Ink edges of the hearts. Glue hearts along felt heart edge. (If you are unable to find a felt heart…cut another large paper heart as the background.) Next adhere background heart with pocket.
5) Last, punch two small holes at the top of the heart. Insert and knot ribbon and your ready to hang and receive Valentines!
