Valentine DIY

My aunt told me about The Great Valentine Swap and I signed up as soon as I could.  You send three handmade valentines to strangers and will get three valentines made by strangers in return. How fun is this?! 

For my valentines I decided to make a winners pin out of felt. I cut all the shapes out of felt and then glued them together.  For the ribbon portion I just stitched some embroidery thread to add a little detail.  I made the valentine portion out of paper and vintage layaway tags.  I almost wrote "Valentine you are my favorite pin" but decided to go with the above.  I tied some bakers twin around the pin and valentine and then sent those babies in the mail!  

I hope the ladies enjoy their valentines.  It was so much fun to make something for someone you don't even know. 

I also shared a little DIY video about them on Vine (my user name is CaseyBovee) too.  How do you guys feel about that app? I have mixed feelings!
