You Stole My Heart Valentine's

Though it may not be baseball season just yet, it is almost Valentine's day.   These 'you stole my heart' Valentine's are quick, easy and fun to make.

First, grab a pencil with a good eraser.  Trace a heart on the eraser.  Using an X-acto knife, remove the excess around the traced heart from your eraser.

Now that we have a heart stamp...

gather the following supplies:  an ink pad, mini stamps, heart shaped sucker, heart pencil stamp and white card stock cut out in circles.

Use the heart pencil stamp to create the stitches on the baseball and add 'you stole my heart' or some other cute baseball saying to the center and attach your sucker.

I think these Valentine's are a definite home run!
