Valentine Heart Squishies

Nothing better than a Valentine that says "SQUEEZE ME!"  Grab your red & pink fabric scraps, some paint and big Art Foamies heart stamps and make these gorgeous, squeezable Valentines for your loved ones.  If you have a few extra, save them for the Christmas tree or your anniversary.  I have a feeling these would be a hit any time of year.  Remember to spread the LOVE 
and always Make Your Mark!
Squeeze me!

 A comfy pile of LOVE!
