-valentines (find them here) or make your own, sized 3.5x8.75.
-envelope template (find it here)
-paper trimmer (with a scoring tool)
-let's start with the valentine...print out and cut. next trim your photo to fit, 2.75x2.75 and adhere. easy right?
-for the envelope, print out and cut around the outside edges. score the inside lines and fold envelope together (with printed lines on the inside) but do not adhere yet.
-before adhering envelope together, let's make the hearts closure (a super cute idea from miss martha). hand cut hearts or use the extras from the valentine pdf. poke two small holes through the heart and the envelope, sewing on, one heart on the top flap and one on the right flap. secure with a double knot on the back.
-after hearts are stitched on, adhere envelope (remember to leave top flap open).
-insert valentine and close envelope by wrapping a 10-inch length of floss in a figure-eight motion around the hearts.
p.s. this envelope is sized to fit in a business envelope so you can mail to your sweeties!
