Today we decided to make window decorations. We made these cute tissue paper hearts. I’m hoping to get a better picture. I was just working with the camera on my phone today.
* Stock Paper of Choice
* Tissue Paper
* Glue Stick
* Hole Punch (not pictured)
* Pencil (not pictured)
First, you fold two piece of paper (matching and stacked together) in half and cut out the half heart shape on the folded edge. Again, what you see above is actually two hearts. I drew out where to cut, and had my oldest daughter do some of the cutting. You can then cut out the inner part of the heart.
Next, you trace around the outer edge of the heart onto the folded tissue paper and then cut just a bit in from that drawn line.
Gluing is the next step. I do a glue line around the inner part of the heart and stick down the tissue paper. Then, I do more glue and put the other heart on top.
These are beautiful!! And it goes perfectly well with the book “The day it rained hearts”
Oooo – I don’t know that book. Maybe we need to head to the bookstore.
What a fun, sweet project!
Thanks, Jenny! The bonus is it’s easy.
how fun are these! Cant wait to do crafts like these when my little girl is older. Thanks for linking up at Giggles, Glitz & Glam.
Thanks! The girls really enjoyed this one. It is fun when they get a bit older. I have ideas for down the road that they’re just not quite ready for yet.
beautiful creation… nice idea to decorate the home on valentine day … 🙂
They’ve been fun decorations to have around. Thanks for commenting.
