Draw a heart with pencil onto cardstock, then trace it in Elmers glue. Let your kids stick the sequins on. Or yarn, or beads, or macaroni, or ribbon, or rice, or pompoms, or googly eyes, or cheesecake. Um...
Then do a straight or zig-zag stitch around the edge with your machine. Easy Peasy.
I scanned my cards into the computer, then added the text in picnik. You can print out your messages first though, if you don't have a scanner.
Take a closeup picture of your card, then develop a bunch. This way you don't have kids sticking pompoms up their noses in class. Or your hubby eating cheesecake for breakfast.
Make sure your child signs the card before you take the picture.
Oh, happy love.
