Directions
 

Using sharp scissors and your template cut felt (you can trace it with pencil)
Thread floss onto needle (I doubled it, but you don’t need to). Whip stitch around the edges of the felt. Start and finish on the ends..glue the ends overlapped when you are finished stitching and add buttons or other embellishments.
Cut out a square from brown felt and whip stitch the same way and glue to outside center of felt sleeve.
Cut out a heart from the Felties, or use pre-cut ones. Glue around the point and edges of the heart and stick onto the brown square. This will leave the top of your heart open to put your little love note in!!
Type or stamp words on paper, cut in a strip and stick it in your heart.
Grab a latte and present to the one you love.

 

* OR…Make the square on the sleeve into a gift card pocket!!
