fabric hearts

Is it really Valentine's Day already?! I had high hopes of showing these earlier in the month so you would actually have time to use them, but I'm afraid the 14th snuck up on me! After making the fabric heart bookmarks, I had a few other ideas for our fabric hearts. (If you're going to purchase a heart punch, you might as well figure out ways to use it.) I made some fabric heart tags, using the same method as the bookmarks. You can download the template here, which prints five to a page. 

My kids always want to give boxes of sweethearts to their classmates, but I like to upgrade the packaging. These bands fit perfectly around a box of sweethearts (currently 3 for $1 at my grocery store). And because the back of the heart isn't shown, there's no need to back the paper like you would in a tag or bookmark (see my directions here). After printing the template onto cardstock, you just tape the fabric square behind the heart cutout and wrap the band around the box. You can download the template here (it prints three bands to a page). The red dashed lines can be scored for easier folding.

Happy Valentine's Day! May you be surrounded by the ones you love!

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on distinct blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content off their writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d choose to use some with all the content in my small weblog whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll provide a link on your own internet weblog. Many thanks sharing.

Hey. Cool article. There's a problem with your site in chrome, and you may want to check this... The browser is the market leader and a huge component of other people will omit your wonderful writing because of this problem.
