DIY Tutorial: White ‘Leather’ Heart Placemats

When it comes to Valentine’s decorations, there’s little that’s less subtle than hearts, right? Honestly, I’m an unabashed lover of hearts, so today we’re embracing them with a set of easy heart placemats. I would argue, however, that the addition of a rich leathery texture and the elegant pop of simple white makes these guys a standout addition to a Valentine’s get-together. – Mandy of Fabric Paper Glue
