Mixed Media Valentine Tags

Valentine Crafting Week 2014 (Copyright Hanna Andersson)

Valentine Craft Week might never end. I might name 2014 the Year of the Pink Heart and continue riding it, waving the love banner high, disappearing into the sunset. Or I might tire of hearts (even though that sounds unlikely right now).

After sewing valentine postcards last week, I continued sewing hearts, but small tag-sized ones!

I simply created them as a layered cake. Bottom layer (the tag) is cut from one of my many painted background papers, then layered with this textured synthetic fiber material that a friend brought me, and then topped with a heart that I sewed on with the sewing machine. Yummy, right?

It’s like the never ending saga!

    Hanna these are sweet sweet sweet. There’s something so yummy about stitching. I didn’t stitch any of mine this year. But now I feel like continuing them so I can stitch!

    Off to check out your previous posts…

    Lovely. Thanks for all the great ideas. I think we should make it a heart year. I’m doing 28 days of cards with hearts as part of my 365 Days of Making Art. 1 card behind at the moment.

    Keep hearting on! You’re obviously good at it and love it, what more could you want? ;-)

  7. I love that long heart look. Gotta try that – most of my heart are… plump! {:-D

  8. Carly says:

    Love these! The stitching looks really nice. :) I only recently realized my sewing machine does more than one stitch, so maybe I’ll have to try this!

  9. These are lovely! I love the stitching and all the bright pink color on your blog this month.
