I made a Valentine for my daughter last year that was a bit different than usual.  I began with a chipboard heart, topped it with a layer of batting & covered it with a flower print fabric.  I made another smaller one the same way but with a differrent fabric & glued it to the center of the larger one.  Then I glued lace around the edge & ironed on a piece of fusible interfacing to finish the back.  Last, I glued a small fabric pocket onto the back into which I inserted a gift card.

I also made decorative hangings by making 3 similar hearts in different sizes & gluing them together.  I decorated these with ribbons, flowers, buttons & birds and added a ribbon loop for hanging.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
