Project

Heart Seals

Introduction

Tug at your valentine's heartstrings with an embellished envelope. Cut out the hearts from colored card stock using a specialty hole punch (available at crafts stores). Poke two holes into each heart with a needle, then sew the hearts onto dual-capacity envelopes (buy your own or download our template) using the needle and silk beading cord. Secure stitches with a double knot on the backside of the flaps. After inserting the valentine, close the envelope by winding a 5-inch length of the cord in a figure-eight motion around the hearts.

    The link to the template is still broken on 2/5/2010. Don't these people do maintenance?

    A cute way of adding a personal touch!

    I used my own template (link to this from slideshow was broken earlier) and small flat shaped buttons also work great instead of the little paper hearts sewn onto the envelope.

    A great way to seal an envelope instead of mundane ole glue or sticker!
