Valentines Are Everywhere!

Many years ago I made Valentines from two small red heart doilies. Using embroidery floss I sewed them together with a chain stitch all the way around, but leaving the top open. I sent these to several friends and put tiny things inside like stickers, notes, poems, tissue paper snowflakes, even beads and other tiny objects captured inside small paper hearts.

Here is one of the 'snowflakes' with heart cut-outs.

An old candy box I found in an antique mall for $1 !
