Paper Heart Frame

I know it is crazy to have two posts in one day… but I had posted a sneak peek on Friday and wanted to share the results!

I had paper hearts left over from our wedding as our adorable flower girl got caught up walking down the aisle she forgot to drop them… which is okay by me because now I can craft with them!

What you need to complete this project:

1 frame (any size)

1 bunch of paper hearts (folded or not) any colour

String

Staple Gun (I had a mini stapler and a hammer)

Ruler

Hole Punch

*I would suggest to make this project super cheap that you visit your local paint store and grab some paint swatches.

Attach hearts to string after hole punching them in any order and staple the string to the back of the frame. Voila!

*If you like the idea of no hole punch, you can glue the hearts to the string.

The original idea came from Pinterest of course and this blog: www.makinghomebase.com/valentines-day-floating-heart-wall-art/

Happy Crafting!

Paper Heart Garland

After a day of painting at my parents this weekend, I opted for a craft I could complete with my mom’s materials.

I found: A deck of cards, red paper, paper cutter and a stapler.

Perfect, a paper heart garland seemed simple and fun especially with Valentines day on it’s way!

The main trick is that you staple the two hearts together, the bottom and top of the next heart at the same time.Once stapled, guide the top part into a heart and hold it for the next heart to be stapled to it. Easy!

Adding the playing cards adds an extra element of fun and helps create depth with the smaller and bigger hearts!
