I got very inspired by Valentine's Day and all things heart-themed this time last year, which was rather ironic given it was the first Valentine's Day I'd spent as a single lady in about 10 years! Creativity eh? It works in funny ways :)
Anyway... I thought it'd be helpful to do a quick round up of last year's projects, in case you were planning some Valentine-themed crafting this year.
(Clockwise from top left)
... make a Valentine's garland, counting down the days with 14 little love notes in 14 mini envelopes
... sew a mini cross stitch heart brooch (or a whole set of brooches as gifts for your friends)
... make a cute owl-themed Valentine's Day card (Owl Always Love You!)
... opt for something simple, with a mini envelope Valentine's card
... throw a party with a heart theme, using felt hearts + washi tape to decorate place cards, etc
... or embroider a romantic little heart and frame it in an embroidery hoop
I also wrote a very handy post last year with links to all my previous heart-themed projects (including the mini cushion (pillow) covered in buttons, a faux bois embroidered heart, a felt heart brooch and cute felt lavender sachets pictured below) plus ideas for adapting some of my paper crafting projects when throwing a Valentine's Day party.
Not a fan of St Valentine? Lots of these tutorials would also make sweet gifts for anniversaries or for couples getting married this year.
