I love making fun little mini Valentine gifts for my kids.

One year I made a fabric heart with a pocket for a special note.

Another time I found some felt heart cutouts at the dollar store which I turned into little pouches to hold some Valentine's candy.

 HOW TO MAKE A FELT VALENTINE ENVELOPE

This project is easy because you don't need an envelope pattern. Let me show you how I make them.

Begin by cutting a piece of felt in half. The finished dimensions should be 4 1/2" X 6". 

I simply fold the felt in half and then cut along the edge.

Cut out some felt hearts.

 Next fold the bottom portion of the felt up. I find that if the bottom portion is about 3 1/2 inches then it works out well. 

But no need to measure. If you'd rather, you can just eyeball it.

Next pin the felt in place and then thread a needle with embroidery floss. Tie a knot in one end.

Insert the needle up through the top right corner of the folded portion.  This will hide the knot between the layers.

Now do a running stitch towards the bottom. (You can use any stitch you like - here's a list of more embroidery stitches.)

  Here's a picture depicting the flow of the stitching. When you get to the end, secure the thread to the first stitch (between the layers) with a knot.

Next add some felt hearts to the top flap of the envelope. I like to turn it to the back side. Adhere the hearts with hot glue.

 Lastly, add a small square of velcro to the underside of the heart. Use the hook side of the velcro - it will hook onto the felt to keep the envelope shut.

 Here's the finished result. Isn't it just an easy and adorable diy?
