Felt Heart Brooches

Picture 012
I had forgotten I had these felt hearts until I found them in a box on my shelves, they are quite thick and firm so I thought I would have a go at making some little Valentine brooches with them.

The hearts are from and I have just glued them on with PVA glue.

I added very small brooch fastenings to the back, this time using Bostick as I think it is a bit stronger than PVA.

Then I fiddle-farted about with the packaging!

Lisa’s Brilliant Idea - Valentines Treat Bag!

Lisa is my best crafty mate, we go craft and moochy shopping together whenever we can and The Hobbycrafts Show at the NEC every November, last year we even managed to sneak into a trade fair!
We both bought these chocolate tokens from Home Bargains, but we weren’t too keen on the naff sentiments on them.
ffff eeee

This is my version of her inspired idea!
