[And I feel like it was brought to you by the letter V. Just so you know.]
I cut apart an envelope from the library and used that as my template. All the stitching was free-hand, as was the stamp cutting from scraps! Inside the envelopes, I opted for laminated animals so that they would slide out of their felt envelopes easier. I plan on sewing snaps to close the envelopes at some point, but my Michaels did not have the size I needed this week.
These were a huge success and here’s the rhyme that I used with them:
Six little Valentines were sent to my house,
The first one said, “I love you, From Mouse.”
Five little Valentines in my mailbox,
The second one said, “Be mine, Love Fox.”
Four little Valentines full of love,
The third one said, “You are sweet, From Dove.”
Three little Valentines just for me,
The fourth one said, “Be my honey, Love Bee.”
Two little Valentine’s mailed with care,
The fifth one said, “Here’s a hug, From Bear.”
The last little Valentine, from my friend Jay,
This one said, “Happy Valentine’s Day!”
