Make It Monday: Tissue Paper Heart Valentine

The clock is ticking and if you have yet to create a heartfelt masterpiece for your valentine then you’ve come to the right place.  Here is a very simple, kid-friendly yet beautiful Valentine’s Day craft.  The idea for the Tissue Paper Heart came from the Meet the Dubien’s blog.

Here’s what you need:

-          Paper – I used white cardstock
-          Pencil
-          Heart shaped cookie cutters or similar (optional of course – you could always freehand it)
-          Tissue paper (I have a ridiculous amount of pink tissue paper on account of I have two little girls and there must have been a memo that went out saying all gifts for little girls must be put in gift bags with pink tissue paper – end of rant)
-          Scissors
-          Glue stick


Trace or draw a heart or two or three on the paper
Cut the tissue paper into small squares

Smear glue within the lines of the heart
Scrunch up the tissue paper and stick it to the gluey heart, so simple

There you have it, a sweet valentine.  You can jazz it up with stickers and what not.

Happy Monday!
