Sewn Paper Heart Valentines

These fun little heart filled packages were so fun to make...even Lily sewed one up!

Just cut 2 heart shapes from decorative paper and place together.

Mine are about  4 1/2 inches long by 4 1/2 inches wide.
I made a template and traced onto the paper.

Sew all the way around...leaving a small opening to fill your heart with goodies.

Back stitch to make sure nothing rips while filling the heart.
I learned the hard way:).

Fill with small treats, then sew the opening.

To add a little ribbon loop, just place between the two pieces in the center and sew.

Use what you have on hand!
I love brown craft paper and torn linen:).
These are so fun and such a sweet little Valentine.

They are easy for little hands to open and enjoy and VERY simple to make!

Happy Valentine's Day!
