Make Sparkly Valentine Cards With GlitterFlex

GlitterFlex Valentines with

Use fabric and GlitterFlex scraps to make pretty Valentine cards for all the loves in your life! We have discussed how and why it is a good idea to keep fabric and GlitterFlex scraps. You may be surprised that even the smallest pieces of GlitterFlex can be put to good use. I’ll show you how I used them to create some quick and easy Valentine cards.

How to Make GlitterFlex Valentines

Using my AccuQuilt GO!, I cut two heart shapes, one large on fabric and one small on GlitterFlex, to fuse on the card. You can use other electronic cutting machines like Sizzix, Brother's ScanNCut, or the Silhouette Cameo, or cut fabric and GlitterFlex by hand just as easily.

First, press your fabric and iron a fusible web on the back. Since you can cut through multiple layers, I left the paper backing on the fusible web and folded the large heart fabric into thirds. Make sure the square will cover the large heart area of the die.

I taped it in place on my die (Heather Feather 2 by Sarah Vedeler).

When it goes through the GO!, it cuts three perfect heart shapes with fusible web on the back.

I use some of my GlitterFlex scraps for the smaller heart, also taping them in place. Leave the plastic carrier in place and cut one at a time.

Peel the paper backing off of each heart piece. Position a fabric heart on the front of the card. I had window cards left over from the Angel Card project. You can also use plain cardstock.

Fuse it in place with a hot iron according to the directions for your fusible web. Add the GlitterFlex heart on top of the fabric and fuse it in place.

You can also add a small fabric heart to the back of the envelope. So much fun to make!
