Valentine Gift Card Holder

*SECOND POST FOR TODAY*
Candy Rocket directions HERE

Welcome back! I have a super quick and easy gift card holder for those Valentine's Day treat cards. Perfect for teachers gifts. :) Just add a To: and From: and you're all set. I actually made these for my teenage daughters, Maddie and Megan.
Cute,right?! I cut two hearts from the Sweethearts cartridge cut at 4.5". After cutting them out I just cut 1.34" from the top of the heart with my paper trimmer. I stitched around the edge with my sewing machine. If you don't have a sewing machine, I would try punching holes along the edge and lacing it up with some fun colored twine.
I used papers from Martha Stewart's Enchanted Woodland
I added a cute little tag using My Craft Spot's *Tiny Tags* metal dies. I stamped *Love U* using the *Tiny Tags 2* stamp set. I tied a cherry red traditional bakers twine heart.
Off to create some more *lovely* projects. :)

  5. Ally, these are super cute and what a great idea! Hey, thanks again for the little gift, I have been using it, in fact the last challenge there was a couple of us that had used the heart charms.
