Valentine Hearts Made From Old Book Pages
I have seen various Christmas ornaments made from old book pages and I wanted to make some for Valentine decorations.
Wouldn't these make cute decorations for your book club meeting?
For this project you will need:
Old book pages
Heart shaped cookie cutter
Red embroidery thread
Large embroidery needle
Small heart shaped button
Trace a bunch of hearts with your cookie cutter and a red marker onto the old book pages. Cut out the hearts.
Thread your embroidery needle with a long strand (using all six threads) slowly and carefully using a running stitch start stitching the two hearts together. You must be very careful when sewing paper that you don't rip the paper.
Once your heart is 75% sewn together add a cotton ball between the two hearts and finish sewing the heart.
Sew the little button at the top of the heart.
These would make a cute garland.
I found making these really relaxing.
