WOVEN BASKET VALENTINES!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!  These woven valentine “baskets” have been around for ages.  They are a design fron Denmark and I remember making them as a child.  This year I made them with printed paper & red paper to give them a different look.  They have to be woven in a loop method – put one loop thru another loop and then put the loop around the next loop.  If you do it just right, you get a basket that opens & you can tuck a little note in!  Add a handmade envelope with 2 hearts stitched on & loop some embroidery floss around the hearts to close the envelope.  Voila!  Sweet little Valentines for those you love!
