Folded Paper Hearts

Inspired by Tracy's HandmadeThursday post the other week over at White Lily Green's Blog i just had to have a go at making these cute little folded paper hearts.

They're very simple to make and it was lovely to just sit down yesterday afternoon and spend some time doing some crafting.

I'm thinking like tracy that these would be lovely for cards, i also thought they would look fab instead of bows on pressies so a good excuse later in the year to make loads from christmas papers! 

If you would like to try your hand at making these then the fab tutorial is available HERE

Black & White Birthday Card

Created using a lovely Digi Stamp Image from Pink Petticoat and coloured with black and warm grey promarkers and skin tone promarkers

I've then just used various backing cards and papers, ribbon paper flowers and a happy birthday sticker.

Simple but pretty

New Baby Card

I've a few friends due babies over the next couple of months so thought I'd better make a start on some cards.

I made this card using a fab duckie printable from Cuddly Buddly and die cut the letters to add the wording Baby Boy.

Valentines card

Thought I'd better make the old man a valentines card so came up with this little cutie ♥

I used a lovely Digi stamp from the "with heart" collection available from Pink Petticoat.
Coloured the image with pro-markers and backed it onto pink and red bazil cardstock.
I then added dotty backing paper ribbon and a little heart sticker from my stash.

Pretty heart tea light holders

For the first of my February crafts I've made some lovely little tea light holders.

Using 2 empty Gu pud glass jars that I've had stashed in the cupboard for ages waiting to be upcycled into something i decided to cross stitch 2 strips of Aida with love hearts (i used a love heart pattern from an old craft magazine but I'm sure there's plenty of heart patterns for free online if anyone wants to make these)

I then just used some glue dots to attach the strips of fabric on the outside of the jars and voila 2 simple tea light holders perfect for valentines ♥

Simple but pretty :)
