Weekend Valentine Crafts...

Brought to you by the crafty people of Better Homes and Gardens~♥
~Wrapped in Love~
Cover your valentine's favorite chocolate bar for a sweet gift in just minutes. Add ribbon, buttons, stamps, or cutouts to make it even more personal. With all the decorative paper in craft stores the possibilities are endless~
~Heart-Shape Pouches~
Hanging heart pouches can hold any type of treats, from a cluster of posies to a handful of candy.
Here's how to make them:
Trace two same-size heart shapes onto pretty paper or card stock; cut out. Cut more hearts in graduated sizes from contrasting paper, and use spray adhesive (made for sewing) or a simple running stitch to attach to the front of the pouch.
Stack the two main hearts with right sides facing out. Starting at one side near the top, use a sewing machine to zigzag stitch around the edge, leaving top open. Trim edges as needed. Punch holes near top of pouch. Thread ribbons through; knot to secure.

    You always share some of the best ideas...I can use all the help in the craft department I can get! I do believe I just might be able to pull off the one for decorating chocolate bars. That's right on my level...no sewing involved!

  8. These are adorable projects, but not nearly as adorable as your beautiful granddaughter.
    I can't believe the audacity they had to suggest aborting at 8 months. What is wrong with these people? I just don't get it.
    Anyway, just trying to catch up again. Hope you're doing well!

  9. Great ideas - thanks for sharing them!

  10. You know Robin, what you showed on your blog right now, is the one thing that scares me the most.... a sewing machine!

  11. I was so glad to see your picture of little Noelle Grace. what a precious gift from God. I know it is hard for Doctors to explain in human terms the wonder of God...when it comes to this little miracle! How very precious!

  12. You will learn I am accident prone..LOL!

    Oh, and remember my "connections" I have Australia on dvd..lol!
