Valentine's Day Project: Woven Heart Baskets

Since I've been into crafts lately, I really wanted to make my own V-Day cards to give to everyone at work.

I thought that Woven Heart Baskets would be a good way to venture into paper crafts. Boy, was I wrong.

After doing this project, I remember why I have not gotten into scrap booking. I am Terrible with paper.

Suddenly, my school years come back to me. Glue everywhere. Misshapen crafts. ugh. But....I did the craft anyway. They didn't turn out as well as I wanted them to, but I will still give them to my co-workers and, with a big cheesy smile, say, "I made these alllll by my self!"

The finished product in 3 variations. I like the red and white best. You can't tell from the pic but the white paper has these little embedded hearts.

If anyone would dare to challenge me, you can find tons of tutorials on the web. One good one is on a Texan teaching site (go figure, its a kid's craft) at

I think they're beautiful! Really! Mmmm, and now I'm imagining the smell of glue and elementary school. Good times.

Aw, I think they are pretty, Melissa! Crafts are fun no matter how they turn out, though.
