Tug at your valentine's heartstrings with an embellished envelope. Cut out the hearts from colored card stock using a specialty hole punch (available at crafts stores). Poke two holes into each heart with a needle, then sew the hearts onto dual-capacity envelopes (buy your own or download our template) using the needle and silk beading cord. Secure stitches with a double knot on the backside of the flaps. After inserting the valentine, close the envelope by winding a 5-inch length of the cord in a figure-eight motion around the hearts.
For the envelope template, u can copy or download it from the following website; http://images.marthastewart.com/images/content/web/pdfs/pdf1/0206_msl_envelope.pdf
Earn bonus points for original packaging with these deconstructed notes: The envelopes don't hold the cards -- they are the cards. Glue the back of a miniature envelope to a piece of decorative card stock, and tuck a gift inside (tickets to a movie or a concert or a gift card to a favorite haunt). For an extra touch, embellish the envelope with paper hearts, and rubber-stamp a hidden message underneath or inside the flap.
