Valentine’s Day is a month or so away. Now that Christmas and New Year’s Eve are well behind us, it seems craft bloggers are busy coming up with creative ideas for making heart-shaped gifts, all handmade and wrapped within a layer of love. Karboojeh Handmade Jewelry‘s heart magnets fit perfectly within the occasion.
I made these hearts early last year (2011) as part of a gift combo dedicated for little girls. I started my crafting “career” with accessories for young ladies, and evolved from there into a more grown up target audience.
Linen scraps (beige and red), denim scraps, twine, baby flower clips, fabric & felt scraps for the stuffing, handmade foam stamps (and ink or felt-point sharpies), white cotton thread, and different colors of ordinary floss for sewing. And, of course, two needles, a soft a big.
When I took part in my – “technically” – 1st craft show that the Italians put together late 2011, I decided to turn these heart softies into fridge magnets. So, I bought a magnetic roll (which you can cut into pieces using plain scissors), and adhered them to the back of the heart softies using really hot glue gun (or else they won’t adhere).
And this is the final product… cute little magnetic hearts.
I love how each is crooked and un-uniformed :)
Wishing you all a life-time of love and possibilities,
