I must be going through holiday decorating withdrawals because I’ve never been as anxious to spruce up my home for Valentine’s Day as this year. I guess I really did enjoy decorating for Christmas. So anywho … I started making Valentine’s Day cards and one thing led to another and before I knew it, I had a paper Valentine heart banner instead.
They still could be … but I couldn’t resist hanging them up!
It’s really not that hard!
Cut out a heart template from any paper – you can simply print a heart template you find online.
Trace the heart onto the card, making sure to overlap just the top of the heart above the card’s folded edge.
Using a glue stick or Mod Podge, glue the scrapbook paper onto the front of the Valentine card.
Decorate as desired. I glued a doily on, and then followed with an origami heart. I used my hot glue gun to attach the origami heart onto the doily. The origami Valentine’s heart has a little pocket so I cut out a little banner, wrote LOVE on it, then tucked it inside. To use as a Valentine’s card, simply write a note on the inside of the card and insert into the envelope that comes with the note cards.
Fold the little banner slightly before gluing to give it a 3-D effect.
Simply hang the Valentine note card over your ribbon of choice.
I found several tutorials for origami hearts. I simply hung them up with a mini wooden clothespin.
When making your own paper Valentine heart banner, you can decorate the hearts any way you want! And now here’s something special just for you!
