When searching through Pinterest for fun Valentines Card ideas, I came across these little cute love notes. The cards are adorable and we just had to make some for my family.
We had a family card making night that I wish I would have taken pictures of. It was adorable and involved the entire dining room table and the whole family. Chuck and Kaleb cut out all the hearts out of scrap booking scraps. Bree used the sewing machine to stitch all the hearts on, and Annika wrote the cute little XOX’s and cut all the strings. She loved that she got 2 jobs, and could finish her part faster than the rest of us.
They turned out so cute! I love that the kids used pinks and purples for the hearts and red stitching.
Everyone loves receiving handmade cards, especially when they are made with love from kiddos. These little cards take no time at all to make and are perfect for the last moment gift.
Here are a few tips that helped our 7 year old budding seamstress when sewing. If your sewing machine has a speed control turn it to a reasonable speed they can handle. This is one of my favorite features of my machine, one less thing for little ones to think about when sewing. I also love that at a controlled speed little fingers are less likely to get somewhere they shouldn’t and there are no crazy speed pulsating. I also use blue tape on my sewing machine to act as a guide for where the edge of the card should be lined up. This helped keep the hearts in the center of the card and also kept the stitches in a straight line.
Leave a link to your favorite hand made Valentines. I would love to see them.
