Heart Envelopes for Valentines Day!


These envelopes are just perfect for Valentines Day!  They hold little trinkets, candy, tickets, or little love notes!  And they are super easy to make, even for kids.


Items needed:
Scrapbook paper
scissors
bone folder (oh where oh where is my bone folder?!? I can't find it!)
ribbon (optional)
I would suggest giving this a try with some scrap paper first, just to get the hang of it.  :)

First, fold the paper in half and draw half the heart against the fold.  The cut out the heart.
Next, fold both sides of the heart into the middle fold line.  Use a bone folder for crisp lines.  I used a popsicle stick since I couldn't find mine.  I prefer the bone folder.  :)
Fold the top of the heart down, as shown.  Again, use the bone folder.
Fold up the bottom and tuck into the top section.  It holds perfectly.

Now, if you would like to layer hearts, it looks really cute!  As you can see, this is perfect for a couple of movie tickets!
And throw a cute ribbon through the middle to finish it off!  Perfect!
