Paper hearts

It's early to be thinking of Valentine's Day with Christmas barely round the corner (and it is still officially Christmas for another couple of days according to the church calendar). However, one thing I'm really learning since I set up the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop, is that you need to start planning and stocking seasonal items very early! So I've just added the first set of Valentine's Day hearts to my shop. This selection is made up of ten hearts of varying sizes. I've also just added four sets of small hearts. Ideal for Valentine's Day or other romantic crafts!

These are made from a vintage French book. I don't normally cut up books, in fact book art often makes me feel uncomfortable, surely a book is worth more as a book? However, this book was literally falling apart so I spent a happy wee while drawing and cutting out red hearts .....

They are cute, I think they will do well for Valentine's Day. Have a great weekend!

Lovely. The French text looks very romantic somehow...

Very pretty, and a usuable idea for cards, I think. I don't go in much for sending cards, but when I do, I prefer to make them myself.

I agree about cutting up books Juliet, but what a clever idea.
