Want to make some for yourself?
Here's what you'll need:
- Scissors (plain-edged and—if you want some variety—decorative)
- Paper (I had a gently-used stack of scraps already laying around, so I used that)
- Ribbon (for hanging, if you want to make a garland or banner)
- Tape (if you're hanging them)
Now, starting off: to find a heart shape, try Googling 'heart stencil'. I reckoned I already had a stencil or two stashed somewhere, but since I couldn't find any, online sources came to the rescue!
For the folding steps, I used this helpful tutorial; while switching back and forth to these instructions. If you happen to already be a paper-cut out pro (congratulations!), then you enjoy some more advanced designs (or do a Google image search).
I also freehand drew and cut out some red hearts and placed them around the dining area in a whimsical trail. The room is transformed into sweetness! (Shhh, I secretly think to myself, 'awww', everytime I walk through there...)
Other than the time it takes to cut out each heart, this craft goes together pretty quickly, and is totally worth the effort. You could say, it's a labour of love...
