Scrappy Valentines…Made With Love

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!

    I’m pretty sure that you were hiding that box of tangled trims from me when I was in Ohio this past summer….I love the way do-dads can add sparkle to a project!

    I love to make hearts. My students would spend a day making individual Valentines for each student in the class. I would ask parents to send whatever trims and buttons they were willing to donate. We played “love” songs and spent the day singing and making Valentines. I miss those days!

      How nice your students made hearts for each other! It’s one of those activities that always brings a smile to the giver and to the receiver! I think I will add glitter to my cards as well. Nothing like opening an envelope and have glitter fall out!

    Hi Cindy! What a fun collection of hearts and embellishments. Your Mom will certainly love that you took the time to make her a special card. ~smile~ Roseanne

      It’s suppose to be super cold this weekend, so I’ll be able to finish them and pop them in the mail. How about you…going to give it a try?
