A Valentine Surprise....

I made these Valentines for two special people!

I cut four matching heart shapes out of brown paper.  I painted a few vases of flowers on two of them and trimmed them with stripes:

I bought large candy bars that were smaller than the hearts:

I placed the candy bar between two pieces of paper....

...and stitched the candy bar inside the hearts!!

I glued a bow on top of each one:

The best part of giving away one of these Valentines, is to watch the expression on the recipients face as they ask "what's inside and how do I get it out?"

  1. What a sweet gift. Your painting is beautiful!

  2. Love, love!! Have a wonderful Valentines Day!

  3. Really cute. I can almost hear the recipients now. I'd be asking the same! Have a great day with your loves, Patti. (PS corrected a typo that was so hideous, I deleted both the orig and the correction!)

  4. So cute Patti, and wow, I never dreamed you can use a sewing machine on paper, so creative and clever!! I know your Valentine lunch must have been incredible ❤️

  5. Patti, love your sweet valentine gifts. Really creative with sewing the paper. Happy weekend.
