Good morning and welcome to the SVG Attic, Gift's from the Heart, blog hop! 

If you have arrived from Jessica's blog, then you are on the right track. If you would like to start at the beginning, click here.

The theme of this blog hop is "Gifts from the heart". I created a small gift that I think  anyone would enjoy.
The box that contains 2 small heart hand warmers. 
The box is from's Cookies for Santa Collection. I re-sized the box to 3.5" x 3.5".
Two heart warmers fit perfectly inside the box.
The warmers are filled with rice. All you have to do is pop them in the microwave for a minute or two and then place them in your coat pockets. Just what is needed for those COLD winter mornings!
The tag was made with My Creative Time's Build a Banner Kit and Mixed Holiday Sentiments stamps.

The heart warmers were really simple to make. 
All you need is:
1. Fleece fabric
2. Heart Template (mine measured 3.25")
3. Sewing Machine
4. Rice
5. Funnel

First take the heart pattern and cut 4 hearts out of your fleece.
Then place two of the hearts together and stitch all the way around the heart, close to the edge. Make sure that you leave a 1" opening so that you can insert the rice.
This is where your funnel and rice come in.
Take the funnel and place it into the opening in the side of your heart. The slowing add rice until your heart is full. I think I used about 2 1/2TBL spoons of rice in each heart. You can also add a small drop of Essential Oil to rice if you want to. I added a bit of Lavender oil to my hearts. 
Then stitch the hearts closed. That's it!

These make the BEST gifts. You can also make larger ones that can be used for the neck or lower back area, as well. 

So no blog hop would be complete without some sort of blog candy and Jessica is giving out two $50 gift certificates for the SVG store. Winners will be chosen via and announced on Monday.
