Valentine’s Day felt heart holder | tutorial

We thought it would be fun to share some oldie-but-goodie projects since a lot of you weren’t around this neck of the blogging woods a few years ago when they first published.  Let’s call this new little series “craft from the past”, shall we? :)

LollyJane | Craft from the past

Anyhoodle, along with our other 3 crafty sisters we have 4 crafty sisters-in-law. (Yes, that’s 9 total if you include us- it’s a little cray cray but we LOVE it!)  One SIL in particular lives far far away from the rest of us in chilly Minnesota and sent us each a sweet love note in the form of a red heart holder made from felt.  Original post seen here.

It’s cute as is but when you open it up….

…it’s bursting with LOVE in the sweet form of Valentine M&M’s.  Cuuuute!  She and our adorable nieces and nephew (now nephews!) put this together… definitely a fun craft to create as a family.  Love that!  Now let’s take a looksie at how you create this pretty little number sans pictures since we weren’t there when she made it ;)

You’ll need:

(2) 5×5 felt squares (one red, one pink),pink thread and Valentine M&M’s.


Simply fold your felt in half & cut a candycane “C” shape out.  Repeat with pink felt.  Stitch “LOVE” on the red felt. Stitch red/pink felt together, leaving a small gap. Fill with Valentine M&M’s. Stitch close & send to someone who you love. ♥
