Card Holder

While searching for Valentine crafts I came across a cute idea, a Valentine card holder. It was a large heart about 10 inches, actually two hearts. One heart was cut in half and when glued to the full heart, made a pocket that could hold Valentine cards. This picture doesn't really show the pocket. The pocket is underneath the cream colored trim. I should of put a few cards in it! I plan to make another one or maybe two. I will post a picture with one full of cards!

I really liked adding all the little what- nots and do -dads to the heart. There is a fine line between too much and just right. I may have crossed the line, but I am sure I didn't break any laws doing so.

I didn't have any ribbon that was wide enough, so I folded pages from a book (shocking I know!), cut a decorative edge, punched a few holes and added white glitter. I love this off white trim, I may have to buy a few more yards next time I am a Jo Ann's.

There was just enough room here to add a bird.

Why not add one more thing? A heart on a clothespin couldn't hurt.
