Valentine's Day | Handmade by Heidi

Hello, hello, everyone!

If you're anything like me, you struggle with what to give your older kids for smaller holidays, like Valentine's Day. Items from the Target Dollar Spot just don't seem to cut it anymore, and you (read, I...) don't want to buy expensive gifts, just for the sake of having something to give them.

So, gift cards it is! 

And truthfully, it's all they really want anyway, sooooo...

But tossing them a naked little square of plastic really isn't my thang, so this year's Valentine's Day gift cards are getting a little fancy packaging.

Heidi's new Handmade by Heidi Kits (available now on include some of the most wonderful stationery and embellishments...especially perfect for creating my gift-card holders.

To start, I grabbed some of my favorite things from the collection...

Next, using my 1" hole punch, I notched out a little semi-circle from each of the front pages of my cards. 

Then I stitched along the bottom and up the right-hand side of each card, creating a pocket.

NOTE: If you don't have a sewing machine, or would prefer not to use it, you can always use a tape runner to seal your edges together.

I typed up little notes for each of the kids on some white cardstock, then I attached a mix of tags and acrylic embellishments to the top using some of the string included in each Tag Kit.

I slipped each card into the pocket I created, letting the tags hang over the front...

...and added each gift card to the pocket.

Then I decorated each envelope a bit with pieces from the Embellish Kits.

Finally, I tucked each card/pocket/giftcard/tag bundle into its respective envelope, sealed them up and set them be opened on February 14. 

I hope they love them...

  1. Wow! superb cards! you are really awesome. Loved it. The toughest part of an essay is to organize the collected points and ideas in a logical way. But this is not really difficult one as you think. Some short cuts can make this tough task to the easier one. Student who are extra cautious think that it is a bad idea to start if you don’t have the complete idea in your mind. But it is not. Almost everyone will be having same potential in searching and finding the resources to get new points. But everyone may not think in same way in case of organizing those points. This is the actual part where the grades differ. If you want to make your essay perfect, you must make an overview first. It can be using anything like diagram and outline. If you want sort your ideas using a diagram, start with drawing a circle in the center. The circle must be big enough to write in. otherwise it will look messy. Write the topic in it. Draw lines from the circle. The number of lines can be chosen by you according to the key points you have. But it is good to leave one or two extra lines. It will be helpful if you got any points later. Draw smaller rounds at the end of lines. Write the key points in it. Further draw lines from those smaller circles and write the sub points in it. And go on. At last you will get well organized points and you are ready to write the essay. The other way is to make an outline about the essay. Write the topic on top middle of the rough paper. Then split the paper into number of parts. Write the key points in a row under the main topic. Then give the sub points under that. These methods will make your essay perfect.
