Block Print Valentines

Steps:4
A Valentine's Day card is even more special when it's handmade, and there are a number of techniques you can employ to create your own cards at home. One especially distinctive method is block printing. Dating back to ninth-century China, block printing involves transferring an ink impression of a design carved in wood, linoleum, or other engravable medium to another surface. Once a design is chosen and then carved, it can be used to make an unlimited number of prints. If you're creating multiple cards, reapply ink to the block after each print, and wash the block with warm water, drying it with a lint-free cloth after every three prints.
Materials
  • Designs of your choice
  • Tracing paper
  • Pencil
  • Speedy Stamp
  • Large spoon
  • Linoleum cutter
  • Various linoleum cutter blades
  •  Block-printing ink 
  • Wax-coated paper plates
  • Soft rubber brayer
  • Card stock

Tufted Cushion

Steps:2
Solid-colored pillows look more distinctive when embellished with pretty pom-poms or buttons. Adding them to both sides of a cushion will prevent the thread from straining the fabric and tearing. The tufting will keep the fill in the insert from shifting, so the pillow will rarely need to be fluffed.
Materials
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Buttons or pom-poms
  • Store-bought pillow cover with insert
  • Upholstery thread
  • Long upholstery needle
