Homemade Valentines Cards

Felt is still the big hit in the house, so we came up with an easy idea to use it for making a few valentine cards.

We took some cardstock cut it in half and folded it to cards.

Traced hearts onto felt and cut them out.

Used a few tiny drops of glue to stick them on the card just so they don't slide of right away.

As last step we used the sewing machine to attach the hearts to the card with a straight or zig zag stitch, once or twice ot three times. It doesn't need to be perfectly straight.

After showing the girls the idea Bella can make them all by themselves and Chiara just needs a little help with the sewing machine.

Preview of our next project in progress:
