Mini Valentines—vintage style

Do you remember those little Valentines we used to give to our classmates as children? My mother would buy me a box and I would carefully select which one I wanted to give to which classmate. In the classroom, we took small paper sacks and decorated them. We hung them up and then each of us would put our Valentines in them. Then we would empty the sacks at home and see what we got. I adored that! Do they even still make those?

These mini cards (2 3/4" or 7 cm square) are my vintage take on those classroom Valentines.


I found some burlap on sale in the Holiday section this weekend. I bought two roles and used some of it here. I like the way it frays and looks instantly old. There are five different designs.

These angels clustered around a heart.

Happy angels having fun.

I did print a sentiment inside these. They're small so there's not much room for writing.

All wrapped up with a red vintage look crinkle ribbon. Granted we don't have the paper sacks to put these in, but I think they'd be perfect for the office or book club. 

Material

Paper—Tim Holtz seasonal paper stack, vintage sheet music, white and red card stock.
Dies—Die-namics squares.
Embellishments—Burlap, Stamperia antique brass hearts, vintage crinkle ribbon.
