Home-made Valentine's Day Card [Tutorial]

So Valentine's Day is coming up and I love making homemade cards. Thus my most recent craft:

Home-made Valentine's Day Card

I recently purchased my first "punch" from Hobby Lobby, 40% off coupon for $5.00. I went with the medium HEART.

I have a lot of colored scraps laying around from scrap-booking and I punched three different hearts. I put some adhesive tabs to make sure they won't move on the card.

Put some hot pink thread into my sewing machine, and setting to the most loose setting.

 Here's the end result.

And of course I couldn't just make ONE. :)

Has any one else done some homemade Valentine's day crafting lately?


  1. So cute!! I love homemade cards too, they are so special and really from the heart!

  2. That is so adorable and I didn't know you could put paper through a sewing machine. I don't own a sewing machine, but I think I can manage the hole-punched hearts.
