Kawaii DIY Valentines Ideas Felt Hearts


Hello Cuties - again here is my last post for the run up for Valentines day! 
I will be doing all my backing and chocolate making on the Thursday so its all freshly made for the 14th to give to my Valentines. I wonder if I will get many cards ( Heehee!!) Yea right! I will  Lucky to even get a card! (n_n)But this post again like the last one can be altered to what you want to use it for!
Today let's make Hanging felt hearts!
(sorry for the crappy Phone photos I cant load up any Camera ones at this time.)
Yay..What you will need is the following.
Sheets of Red felt
A heart template or shape to use as a guide
A pencil to trace the shape on the felt.
A needle
Thread
Scissors.

To start with you should get your heart shaper template and trace around it on the red felts. You do not need to use heart as you can pick any shape you want but cause is near Valentines day I picked hearts. Also they are very cute too. You can pick any colour of felts for your hearts as well so don't let what I have picked limit you in any way. Once you have traced out your shapes you will need the scissors for cutting them out.

Once you have cut them all out I made about 12 single hearts and paired them up to make them double sided, *DON'T throw away any scrap felt!* I paired up the hearts with the pencil showing on the outside and then took my thread and needle and started to do a simple stitch around them but not completely sewing them up, as I then turned them inside out.
Using the left over felts I used that to stuff the insides of my hearts making them into tiny plushie hearts. Make sure you cut up the extra felts into smaller pieces so they fit into the hearts hehe. Then finish sewing up the cute little heart. (^.~) Kawaii!

Do this with your paired up hearts and you should then have 6 plushie cute hearts. Know with the thread you will want to cut a long piece for string them all together as well. So make sure you have plenty thread.Starting with the first heart string it from the top of the heart in the middle and then thread on the second one from the bottom and the top. That way it will swing about less when hung. And then do the same with the rest till you get to the last one. Once at the top make sure to loop your thread and then its ready for hanging up!

Like I already said you don't have to stick with my guidelines of shape and colour. Why not make some stars or Clouds or what about rainbow coloured felts. Also you could add any sort of extra decorations for extra Kawaii fun!

I cant wait to see every one making Kawaii valentines ideas!
Feel free to send me pictures of your Kawaii Valentines DIY's I bet they are super cute.

Till next time!
<3 Stay cute.

Kawaii Valentines heart with secret message!


Hello Cuties, Well its February and that means Valentines day.
So when you are stuck for ideas and want to make them Kawaii you have come to the right place.


So, I was feeling creative and make a Kawaii idea, I also am feeling the lows of having to save for my camera and did not want to spend much money on St. Valentines Day. Also I wanted to make my gift personal to my loved one.So here is a How to make a Valentines Heart with a secret message!

All you need for this idea is a few Craft supplies and with miss chibi bean having an abundance of '' Makes things'' as she calls it , I had the following at hand...Origami Paper, Stick on Gems and left over Christmas ribbon, the one that looks so neat and pretty on gifts but is a nightmare to take off to get to unwrapping your christmas gifts . You will also need a hole puncher too.



So step 1~ is the tricky part and takes a bit of time here~

Making a Origami Heart I made a double sided one which can be found Here!! So you would make one of these with your Origami paper (or coloured paper cut to size.)


Step 2~Take the hole punch and make a hole

Step 3~  Thread the ribbon or gift wrap ribbon through the hole and make a bow.

Step 4~ Use a Sticky Gem or other decorative item and stick it on the bow to secure it.

Step 5~ Add a small piece of paper with your message on it , slide it into the folds of the heart to keep it safe and taaa-daaa!

You have a small kawaii love heart with a secret message for a loved one or admirer. 
Chhuuuu!!



These are just so Kawaii!!







I also have some more Kawaii Valentines ideas that I shall post up next time!

Stay Kawaii!
