Tutorial Tuesday: Valentine’s Day Card
By nature, I’m not especially romantic. I’m not one of those girls who’s ever daydreamed about her wedding, and I despise most romantic comedies. But since Valentine’s Day is coming up and I know my Valentine will appreciate it, I made him a card. If you’d like to make one, too, I’ve hidden it from him behind the cut, so click the link.
Cardstock (8.5″ by 11″ sheet)
3. With your needle, outline your design by poking holes the length you want your stitches to be. Make sure not to put the holes too close together, otherwise you’ll tear the paper when you pull the needle and thread through, and then those stitches will be twice as long. This happened to me in a couple of places.
8. Write something sweet and sappy inside, like, “Valentine, you’ve got my heart all stitched up.” Or, if you don’t have a special someone, you could modify the card to add “BFFs” between the initials and give the card to your best friend.
Whip up some homemade chocolate truffles (they’re actually pretty easy to make!) and you’ve got yourself a nice Valentine’s Day gift.
