Heart Crafts with Lifestyle Crafts!

Lifestyle Crafts has some new die cuts just in time for Valentines Day! They are the Sweetheart Shapes and I have some fun projects you can do with them to get ready for the big day of love!
The great thing about Lifestyle Crafts die cuts are that they work in most die cutting machines!  I have a discount code at the bottom of the post for F&J readers!

For the card and the streamers you will need:
Scrapbook Paper or card-stock
Sewing machine

For the Card:
Cut your card stock into a 8X6 piece and fold in half.  Find the die cuts that will fit on your card.

Cut out your hearts in alternating papers place (do NOT glue) on your card.

Use your sewing machine and sew a line down the middle of the hearts. 

Add your embellishments and fold out the sides of the heart to give it a 3-d feel and you are done!

For the Heart Streamers:
Cut out 5 heart shapes in two papers (or one double-sided paper)

Bring you hearts over to your sewing machine.  Layer the hearts with wrong-sides-together and line them up along your sewing machine from biggest to smallest. 
Sew down the middle of the hearts.  When you get to the bottom of one heart line up the next heart and sew down the middle of that one, continuing on so that all the hearts are in a line.
It should look like this:
Make some more and hang them up!

Make your own {no sew} heart patches:
you will need:
Nesting Heart die cuts from Lifestyle Crafts (I used the Scallop hearts for this one)
Heat and Bond
Piece of clothing to put the patches on.

Iron on the Heat&Bond to the WRONG side of the fabric  {Use the Heat&bond instuctions}.  I cut my fabric to be 6 inches wide so that it would fit in to my Epic 6 Die Cutter

Decide what hearts sizes you want to use and run the fabric through the die cutter.

Peel off the paper backing off the Heat&Bond fabric and iron it on to your clothing.  I used my patches to cover up dirty knees on some legging.  But I think it would be ADORABLE on a shirt or dress for Valentines day!
