the best investment i made from michael's was a heart hole punch! (all of there hole punches were 1/2 off!). i then took old magazines i had laying around, and punched away! (pottery barn magazines were my favorites) after i punched them out i sewed them together (both horizontally and vertically) to create valentine garlands i strung around the house
next, i cut out felt heart shapes, embellished them, stuffed them and sewed them shut to create a heart garland.
