I did a little V-day swap with some of the other Craftster mods this year. We are swapping a card and an optional extra. I decided to combine the card and extra into one!



To make this, I first stitched up a whole bunch of felt hearts. I attached a piece of bakers twine to the back so that they could be hung as ornaments. I glued a piece of book page to cover up the stitches and secure the twine.





I stamped pieces of linen with the words "follow your..." and stitched them to blank note cards using my sewing machine.



I punched small holes into the front of the cards so that I could tie the heart ornaments to the front and complete the "follow your heart" message. The hearts can be untied by the recipient and used as a V-day decoration. 



leslieshappyheart also made a version of these that are adorable! She shared them on this board so check those out too!!

Thank you!! I think I might make some more of the felt hearts and leave them in sneaky places for strangers to find on V-day Smiley.
