How to sew a paper valentine



Here is a little tutorial on how to sew a cute valentine for your loved one (s)

I have been making these as placecards and it occurred to me that they would make a pretty cute and quick valentine.






Step one: Trace your shape onto some thick card stock




Step two: use a pin to make holes in your design.
* matching the colour of your pin to your embroidery thread is not necessary



It helps to use a piece of foam behind your card stock. 
Prevents stabbing yourself or making bends in the card.




Step three: Thread your needle with some embroidery thread




Step four: Sew your design




Step five: Repeat!!


Have fun and happy valentines lovers!!

P.s excuse the white paint on my perfectly shellaced nails. 
Got a few projects on the go.......
