Needlework: Crocheted Valentine Envelopes

 These Valentine Envelopes are decorated with the Valentine Rosette.  I slipped a heart cookie cutter inside and tied the valentine card onto the ribbon.  The pins can be detached to wear on clothing or bags etc. [It might be a good idea to spray the backs with hair spray to prevent the red felt from rubbing off.]
