DIY: Valentines Day Woven Heart Baskets

I love valentines & this is one of my favorite crafts from my childhood. I remember making these many years in a row & putting homemade cookies in them for friends & classmates. We always used solid paper, but this year I tried printed paper & I like how it adds a bit of sophistication.

I have been trying to muster up the brainpower for days to post a tutorial on these, but it wasn't happening. THANKFULLY the Internet comes through for me again as there are quite a few tutorials online already. Yay! & this one even has hearts in the middle that magically appear - what?!? I thought mine were fancy.

The size can vary, but mine end up being about 5 inches across & I usually skip the handle. These would be great as candy holders, decoration, or make a big one & use it to collect the piles and piles of valentines you know you're going to get ; )

Hello! Valentine's Day is not so big in the Netherlands than in your country. So I can't give comments on that topic. But I love your photography and will keep an eye on your work! Always inspiring to see how other people work! Have a nice weekend!
