Have someone who in your life who loves to sew? If you're reading The Sew Weekly, then the answer is probably yes. Show them some Valentine love with this extra special Valentine that goes further than just a card. It's practical, too!
The materials you'll need
- A printout of the PDF Download it here
- Card Stock (white and red/pink/whatever)
- Glue, Scissors, stapler
- Lace, seam binding, ribbon — whatever you'd like to give to your recipient
- Sewing machine or needle (optional)
Step 1: Print out the PDF Valentine (download it here). You can either print it on card stock or regular printer paper. Cut out the Valentines around the outside border.
Step 2: Cut a piece of card stock 4" by 12". This is the base of your card.
Step 3: Glue the printed Valentine onto the front, right side of your card.
Step 4: Cut another piece of card stock for inside the card. You'll be wrapping your lace, ribbon, binding, etc… around this piece of card stock. The dimensions should be about 4" x 6".
Step 5: Tape the start of your notion onto the card and then wrap the lace (or whatever) around the card. You'll end up with something that looks like this:
Step 6: You're going to attach the lace card to the main card. You can either staple the card edges or, if you want to be fancy, you can stitch the cards together.
Step 7: Fold the card, add your message and voila! You've just created a practical Valentine that the recipient can use for her own projects.
