Paper Hearts


When I saw these paper hearts at Jill's blog, I knew I'd be making a few. Book paper and hearts, what's not to love? A few strung together for a simple garland, and one more...



to hang from the dining room chandelier. Decorating for Valentine's Day is always minimal - but these are so sweet. 


Mine are a little smaller than Jill's - it's easy to adjust the size. Here's a link to the tutorial, and another one to see Jill's finished garland. Go on, make one, or two, or a whole string of them. Jill is making a flurry of them to adorn the backs of chairs at her daughter's wedding.

They are addicting aren't they? I'm so happy to see they are now adorning your home. I look at mine and enjoy the gracefulness of them everyday. Thanks for the links!

They're lovely - I can see them in my house too....and they'd make a beautiful wedding decoration.

Happy heart day to you Lorrie :) Looks like we will be seeing Darlene and her hubby in a few weeks. We are going to some of the alumni week end at Briercrest...what a great way to honor Colin with a memorial scholarship award. Ben is also checking out the Clipper hockey program at Briercrest.

This is a great idea - I like the idea of using a paper other than the traditional red or pink, Thanks Lorrie.

They are so pretty! I don't usually decorate for Valentine's Day but I save web site tutorials to use one day as arts and crafts with my grandson. This will be a keeper! Thanks!
