Valentines Heart Candy Card Instructions:
Cut 'n paste the template and print it off
Trace the template onto the card and the clear plastic and cut out one of each
|This is a great project for reusing old cards|
Put your Valentines message on the front with stick-on letters or a waterproof marker
|Add your valentines message to the candy heart with scrapbooking letters|
Lay the clear plastic over the card and punch a series of holes around the edge about 1cm apart
|Line up the plastic and card hearts each time you punch a hole for the best results|
Thread some ribbon or cord around the edges to "sew" the layers together leaving a gap at the top
|Loop the ribbon through the bottom of the hearts from the back|
|Flip over and start "sewing" the layers together|
Fill with candy and "sew" up the rest of the candy heart tying the ends of the ribbon into a bow or tie the ends together to make a loop so you can hang the heart or your loved one's locker, front door handle etc.
|Use candy that matches your card pattern for a super co-ordinated look|
