Love Note Valentine Craft

Valentine banner for notes

Want to leave little love notes (or treats!) to your kids for valentines day? We love pocket banners -these are made with our printed felt for extra fun! 

Valentine treat holder

Supplies:
Printed felt (or just cut hearts out of solid colored felt!)
Scissors
Dowel
Thread 
Tacky Glue
Pattern

You may find it helpful to use this pattern when cutting out a banner. We like our freezer paper method to transfer the pattern neatly to the felt. For the printed felt we just took our scissors and got to cutting all the hearts! 

Easy Valentine day craft

We selected the largest heart and applied glue around the outer edge (don't apply to the top or it won't be a pocket!). 

Valentine Day Banner

Position heart where you want on the banner and add other printed flair! 

Valentine Note Holder

Place the dowel though the slits you had cut (or glue the top over the dowel to make a flap). Make a hanger from string. 

Finally, write a little note! Tell a friend an encouraging word or write your child a knock-knock joke! Happy Valentines day! Use your extra patterned felt to make badges, barrettes, garlands and Valentine's!

Show your valentine how much you really love them with our oversized felt hearts!

Grab your supplies:
Two 20x30" 1/2" thick foam sheets per heart
Wool Blend Felt from Benzie, one yard per heart -we used Coral, Magenta and Lilac
12x20" sheet of glitter iron-on (we love white!)
hot glue
scissors
heart pattern 

DIY big valentine

Print out the pattern (borderless if you have that option) and tape together to make up the heart. The pattern will overlap about 1/4 of an inch. Use this shape to trace and cut out foam core pieces with a utility knife. I layered 2 sheets together to make a thicker heart.

Second, cut out 27"x27" piece of felt, lay foam heart on top and trace a heart boarder about 4-5 inches out from the foam heart. Cut notches every 1-3 inches and hot glue to the back of the heart to secure.

Third, add your heart felt phrase! I used the typestyle Antipasto from Font Squirrel sized to 280 points and cut it out on my electronic cutting machine (don't forget to reverse the letters!) -you can also trace letters on felt easily using the freezer paper method. Iron on! Imagine your sweetheart when they receive this valentine!
