Sandy and I are always looking for ways to use scraps of fabric…no matter how tiny they might be! I decided to make Valentine’s Day cards using some of the little scraps I just couldn’t throw away.
I started with a package of blank 4×5 inch blank note cards. You can find smaller or larger blank note cards but this seemed like a good size for Valentine’s Day cards.
I looked through my box of tangled trims…yikes, what a disaster! I untangled them and picked out colors that would coordinate with pink and red.
Then…I just started cutting out hearts from little scraps…below is just a start!
Two hearts from one scrap! I liked both and decided to use them on different cards.
This is cute! Mom likes pink, this might be the one for her. It looks big in the picture below but it is sized to fit on the 4 x 5 inch card.
How about this green trim! What a find in my tangle of trims!
I found some tulle scraps and some cute buttons…this will add some zip to my Valentines!
I’ll be working on my Valentines over the weekend. I plan to sew and/or glue the fabric hearts to the cards and use glue to add buttons and trim.
Give this a try! It’s a fun way to use up extra scraps of fabric and trim AND your Valentines will be one of a kind!
