Here's what you need:
Ribbon to whatever length you want it
I obviously used cardboard. I thought it would hold the weight a lot better. And I had tons of it laying around from Christmas packages.
First of all I made a heart that I liked on regular paper. I cut it out and I traced it on some cardboard. I then cut out my hearts and poked 2 holes in each each heart and laced my ribbon through them.
Then it was time to cut squares out of the long strips of crepe paper. Fast and easy if you triple or quadruple the layers of paper.
If you don't remember how to do this I will show you. :o) Just put your pencil right in the middle of your square.
And then fold up the square so it wraps around your pencil. Then you'll dip it in glue.
And then press it onto your cut out shape. Bring up the pencil and the paper stays there all cute and stuff. Keep doing this until it looks just the way you want it. I didn't glue over the ribbon, so if I wanted to move the hearts I could. The crepe paper hid it pretty good.
How cute is this?!
Here's the finished product. I think it turned out so cute.
If you are really into the crafting mood then you can make The Heart Felt Wreath I made last year. I have made a few more since then just to go around the house, and I LOVE them! I just love Valentine's Day. Always have. And it's not cause of the treats and presents, it's because my birthday always follows the day after. :o)
Have a happy day! And let's pray we get clobbered with snow today.
