Hubby’s valentine is finished… and I love it!
Here are all the details so you can make one too:
* cotton fabric
* embroidery thread
* glue stick (I used Elmer’s Heavy Duty)
* cardboard (from a cereal box, snack food box, etc)
* piece of heavy paper (32lb)
The cardboard was cut about 1/4″ smaller than the embroidered fabric. I glued the fabric to the cardboard and pushed all the air bubbles out with a knitting needle to make it nice and smooth.
The edges of the fabric got clipped and glued to the back of the cardboard.
Using that handy dandy glue stick, I stuck the fabric-wrapped cardboard onto a piece of heavy paper. Then, I trimmed the paper to the shape of the valentine.
