I used the new Berry Basket die to make the baskets and then filled them with little candies and goodies for each person. For the girls I made vintage fabric hearts for them to hang in their rooms. My daughter likes pink so I made her a pink heart. I stamped little "love" messages and put those in their baskets as well.
For my daughter-in-law, I made a peach vintage heart for her basket. I enjoyed picking out the fabrics to make the hearts with. I sewed assorted pretty ribbons and embellished the hearts with fancy stitches from my sewing machine. Then I added some embellishments such as a yo-yo flower and some vintage buttons to complete the look. The hearts can be hung or used for decoration.
I had so much fun making them that I'm sure that I will be making more of them. Maybe I'll make some for the spring craft fair!
To finish off the Valentine dinner, I baked some mini heart pies. I used pie crust as the base, cut them out with a heart cookie cutter and added some jam. Then I topped them with another heart, brushed them with an coating and added some sugar topping. I made some of the pies with cherry pie filling and although they were a little messier, I liked those the best!
And yes, Lisa (my sister), I did make them myself!
