Simple Valentine's Heart Craft

I made a really simple craft to decorate my home for Valentine's day.
It didn't cost me a penny because 
I used all scrap material that I had lying around in my scrapbook room.
Choose two coordinating materials that you like along with needle point thread.
Find an old frame.
Cut out a heart template that will fit your frame.
Using the template, trace on the back of the material and cut your heart out.
Thread the heart onto your backing material.
It doesn't have to be perfect.  
Imperfections make the craft look quaint and home-made.
Probably best if you don't let your cat near it while you are sewing.
This is what you get when you put it all together!
