Valentine's Day gifts

Take a look at these cute Valentine's Day cards and gifts I whipped up for some work friends!  The cards were a free download at Thirty Handmade Days.  Her idea was to make covered button earrings and attach them to the cards that read "Cute as a button."  I loved that idea, but not many of my friends wear stud earrings, so I decided to make button thumb tacks instead!
 All I needed were flat head thumb tacks, my big jar of buttons, and a hot glue gun. 
Here's the card printed out with 2 of the tacks stuck in.  I love it!  Maybe next time I'll make fabric covered thumb tacks.  That would be cute, too!

Happy Valentine's Day!
