Paper Valentine Heart Banner

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!

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.
