Valentine Folded 'Tuck-In' Note

I saw a cute project in a magazine called, Daphne's Dairy (no.7).  The magazine supplied a pretty printed hearts which could be folded into a mini envelopes or notes.  (I love this magazine because of all the free stuff (tags, calendars, etc.) that are included with each issue.)
I decided to use the largest heart in the Little B die set I purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  These dies also impress some 'x' stitching marks which although they don't show in the photos are very attractive.  The paper I chose was from the Pebbles Valentine collection sold this year at Ben Franklin Crafts.  (Be sure to select a card stock that has one side that can be written on.)
You can see how easy it is to fold the big heart into an envelope shape which can be embellished with twine and a resin heart brad (Crate Paper) from BFC. I used a pliers to bend down the arms of the brad to they would not show on the inside of the envelope.  The resin heart was then glued down to the envelope flap. 
To add more interest to the inside of the note, I rubbed on two sentiment images from the Crate Paper rub-on Valentine set (available at BFC.)  This Valentine project is a super easy but delightful way to make a sweet note to include in a lunch box, backpack or briefcase.  Make one today and send a little love into the world.  It's not just for Valentine's Day!

Sweet envelopes Lynn. Love the cross stitching impressions on the die. Haven't seen those before. I really like the idea of adding a sweet note in a lunchbox, backpack, or briefcase. Have a fun and crafty week.
