DIY: Reception Placecards

I have been scheming and brainstorming what to do for our placecards for the reception. We wanted something edible but we already have a candy slash cocktails buffet so something sweet would be redundant.   I have been browsing the net for ideas when I came upon this tutorial. I realized I can do this too but instead of putting in candies, why not mints!!

So, yesterday I tried my hand at making these felt hearts...


Here is my first attempt. I know the stitches are kinda crooked and all. And uneven too...


I tried a different stitch with the second one. But the first one looks better, I think.


Here is a group picture of what I have created so far.


I also plan to put a small round magnet at the back and then stick it to a metal slab wrapped in shabhy chic cloth for the reception. What do you think, hmmmm?

For the finished product, it will look something like this...


Tadah!! Yeah, yeah, I know... I got the letter D backwards here. But this is practice stuff, okay? Tee-hee...
I have, so far, made 4 pieces. I have 176 pieces more to go!! Woot, woot!!
