More heart themed projects. ;o)
Hope you like them....
I think these projects would work for more occasions than Valentine's Day and secondly, you know I love ideas for using fabric scraps.
|Scrappy Heart Notecards|
I made these notecards from pink and red scraps. Many were strips left over from squaring up fabric, which means their widths vary. Using machine needles I keep specifically for sewing through paper, I pieced the fabric strips directly to the cardstock. After all the strips are sewn on, I "quilt" them to the cardstock (which simply means I stitched random lines every which way across them ;o). Then, I add some fusible web to the back of the cardstock, trace and then cut out my heart shapes. Next, I fuse the hearts onto tiny notecards and then stitch around the heart. Simple, right?
|No two cards are exactly alike.|
I also use a similar method to fashion some scrappy tags. All steps are the same except I use my Sizzix machine with a tag die. All cutting was done with the die, after I fused my scrappy pieced cardstock to coloured cardstock. Voila! Tags are fabric on one size and coloured cardstock on the other. Add ribbon and attach to gift! Simple and unique. I like it!
|A fun way to personalize a gift tag.|
I love having handmade notecards and tags for gift giving and even better when they let me make good use of my scraps!
