Handmade Valentines Day Cards
This nifty project pairs up fabric scraps and heart shaped cookie cutters To construct the base of each pincushion, place the sharp side of a cookie cutter atop a thin piece of Styrofoam (we used a produce tray from a grocery store). Press the cutter down to imprint the Styrofoam then cut out the heart shape. Cut a heart shaped piece of fabric that about half an inch larger, all the way around, than the Styrofoam shape. Lay the fabric, right side down, on a flat surface and cover the back with Aleene Tacky Glue (doller4.50 for eight ounces amazon.com) then press the Styrofoam against the fabric. Pull the excess fabric up around the Styrofoam edges and secure with more glue let dry for 30 minutes. With the cushion still inside the cutter, cover the cushion bottom with a generous coat of glue. Push the Styrofoam into the cutter so that it presses against the glue hold in place for three minutes. Let dry for 30 minutes.
