Puffy Heart Tags

Created by Krisha of Jacks & Kate for I Heart Nap Time.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’m in crunch mode at my house. I don’t know why, but this holiday sneaks up on me every year. My kids and I have been busy making Valentines and these fun puffy heart tags.

Supplies:

Brown kraft paper
Scrap fabric
Glue stick
Scissors
Pencil
Poly-fil
Twine
Sewing machine

This is a super fun craft to do with your kids. They can do everything, but will most likely need an adult to help with the sewing. My youngest still needed some help with cutting, but otherwise an easy craft for them.

First, cut 5 rectangles of kraft paper. I love to use the packing paper that comes in all my deliveries. I actually refer to it as, “paper gold” around here, because it’s that awesome! Next, glue three pieces of the kraft paper together. Then, draw a heart in the middle and cut out.

Glue a piece of the scrap fabric to the back of your cut out. Then, glue the remaining two kraft paper rectangles together and place on top of the glued down fabric. Next, sew around the heart, leaving a small opening for stuffing.

Now, you can puff up your heart by adding some Poly-fil a little at a time, until it’s puffy enough for you.

Once you’re happy with the stuffing, sew the opening close. Now, draw another heart approximately 1 inch from the puffy heart. Sew along the newly drawn heart and then cut out

Punch a hole and add some twine for hanging. Add a special message on the back (This was an afterthought. It, would be much easier to write a message before stuffing the heart).

KrishaHi, I’m Krisha from Jacks & Kate! I’m a stay at home Mom to three kids Jackson 4 {Jacks}, Savannah Kate 3 {Kate}, and Annabelle Louise 1 {Annie or Lulu}. As you might imagine, things can get a little crazy. I sew to keep myself sane! The funny thing is, I used to not like sewing. Even funnier, I still don’t like it all that much. I do however, LOVE creating and designing. That’s where the real fun happens!!

    These are totally cute! I would love to make these. I love that you can hand stitch these and don’t have to use a machine. (As is it, my sewing machine is always on my kitchen table — I have to find a home for it!)
