During the year I have been really sorting out the contents of my craft cupboards and drawers, trying to use as much stuff up as possible. I must have had these sewn felt hearts for well over three years.
I bought several boxes of them from an Ikea sale and think I paid about 50p for a box of twelve, but never knew quite what to do with them when I got them home.
But, then I had an Ulrika moment when I “re-found” these Prima “Say It In Studs” self adhesive jewel stickers. As I had several packets of the same designs and colour ways I was able to put the same design on each side of the heart, and no sewing …. or messing with glue, they were all done in five minutes.
I also found some leftover bows for these four hearts, adding a flat backed gem in the centre.
As you know I don’t usually give cards to my work colleagues at Christmas, preferring to give them a small decoration for their tree which will hopefully stay with them a lot longer than a card, and that is what I intend to do with these.
