Valentines (Courtesy BHG.com) So, how cute are these? It’s day two of our Valentine countdown and we’re making these pretty paper heart pockets, some as decorations and others for holding valentine cards. They’re another brilliant idea from BHG.com‘s round up of Valentine ideas. Here’s how to make them…

1. Cut two heart shapes of equal size out of pink or red paper or card stock.

2. Cut 2 or 3 additional, smaller hearts from contrasting paper, and attach them with glue, spray adhesive, double sticky tape or a simple running stitch to the front.

3. Now stack the two main hearts with right sides facing out. Use a sewing machine to zigzag stitch around the edges, leaving the top open. Use pinking shears to trim the edges, if you wish, then punch holes near the top of pouch and thread ribbons through. Voila!
