While I was in Mexico City last October, I couldn’t turn a corner without seeing cozy felted embroidered pom pom hearts.These hearts are traditionally made by the Huichol, a group of people that are native to central Mexico. The Huichol believe the way to live is to open our hearts so that we may see with our hearts. The felted hearts I saw are symbolic of that mantra and I immediately thought they would be perfect for Valentine’s Day! But I also wanted to make them practical–something you could provide as a little treat. SO! Of course, we made them in paper—cheap, easy, and so makeable! You can cut them out with your Cricut and add treats inside for a thoughtful way to show someone you love them. For a fresh spin, we added in some colorful hearts and fruits on top.

Our Cricut maker (insert link) makes Valentine making a cinch. This machine is the perfect crafting tool, it cuts paper, fabric, vinyl, and many other materials; it can also score, create fold lines, and draw. The Maker (insert link) is versatile and easy to use, making it one of our staples in the Lars studio. Really, we talk about it a lot, but for good reason. I really hope you’re catching on that it should be a part of a crafter AND a designer’s tool box. Here at Lars it’s our secret weapon.

Valentine Tassel Heart Favor Box

 

Materials:

I’m loving the idea that this could be given as a gift and used practically as a candy box AND it also works well as decor. Score! Can’t wait to see how you style your own. If you do make it, we’d love to see it in our Valentine hashtag, #LarsLovesLove.
