Directions


Lay your two pieces of red construction paper on top of each other. Fold them in half and cut out a large heart shape. (You should have 2 hearts when you’re done.)

Tear off a square of parchment paper slightly bigger than the heart shape.

Use your glue stick to glue one of the large hearts to the parchment paper. Cut off excess parchment paper.

Cut out several tiny heart shapes from your pink and red tissue paper. (We didn’t have any red tissue paper. So we used red construction paper for our red hearts.)

Glue a length of string to the top of the heart. I recommend using a hot glue gun for this part so the string stays secure when you hang it.
