I love re-purposing. One of the main ingredients to these heart-shaped tags is a felted wool sweater. I have felted wool before, but I have to say I was pretty surprised after I put an adult-sized sweater into the washing machine and it came out size 2T. The wool was really, really thick, but my Big Shot handled it with no problem.
I am also loving the giant dictionary I picked up at the thrift store last weekend. Where else can you get 800 pieces of double-sided paper for a buck and change? I adhered red cardstock to the back of the dictionary paper to add stability before using decorative scissors to trim the edges.
I used hot glue to adhere the felt hearts to the paper hearts and embellished with some fancy stuff from my "stash."
Happy Heart Day!
