Nuts About You

I saw a cute idea on Pinterest.  Here is my take on it.
I have a love/hate relationship with my Silhouette.  I must say that I am pretty proud of myself for figuring out how to create and cut this nut without a file.  It took a looooong time, so long that I decided to make six of them for the sons and SILs; I didn't want to waste all that time on one card!  (Usually I make every Valentine unique and different for each recipient but this year all the guys are getting the same.)
The card from which I took this idea was wrapped and stamped in duct tape.  For mine I just cut out some hearts with a Cuttlebug die and glued them on the front.  To keep the "shop" idea going, I added a piece of wire and corkscrewed the ends.
