I found these adorable felt envelopes in the Dollar Spot section at Target. What can’t you find at Target? I knew that I wanted to make these personalized for Valentines Day and fill them with goodies for my kids. I made a really cute SVG file and sized it to fit perfectly in my deisng software. I added each of their names underneath and I may just keep them do this every year.

Supplies for your Valentine Felt Envelopes

Begin by opening the SVG file and upload it into your design software, then send it to your machine. Be sure to mirror the image when using any iron-on. To prepare your image, you’re going to weed out the negative space of the file. The main image will remain on the carrier sheet. You do not want to cut all the way through the carrier sheet for Iron-On.

Create these easy DIY Felt Valentine Envelopes. Give them to your kids for the perfect Valentines gift.

Lay your image on your felt envelope and press. If you’re using the Cricut EasyPress to press your iron-on foil, set your machine to 300°. Preheat your envelope for 10 seconds and lay the image where you want it. Place your iron-on protective sheet over the image and press for 25-30 seconds.

You can peel your iron-on foil warm but it is best to allow it to cool. Give it 1-2 minutes. If you’re going to press it with your iron, head here for tips

So informative and usefulThe Alison Show is a crazy fun, creative blog and she put together a whole course about sugar cookies, this course cost $30 and it’s really worth every penny. I realized every mistake I was doing before. She really gives a comprehensive recipe that makes a dang good cookie. In my cookies I added almond extract and lots of lemon juice in the royal icing. I usually buy the Wilton colors for the dye but I used the Americana and I really liked the outcome and I recommend those. The cookies are delicious and last forever and figuring out what theme I wanted was even more fun. I know I’ll be making these in the future!Create these one of a kind sugar cookies using The Alison Show's recipe. So informative and useful
