valentine’s day paper heart wall décor

This stunning paper-crafted heart will make a beautiful décor piece for years to come. Impress your friends and family with this Valentine’s Day Paper Heart Wall Décor that is made entirely with paper and embellishments.
Step 1

Using scrap paper that's 12" x 12 " [30.48 cm x 30.48 cm], fold it in half and draw half of a heart. Cut out to make the pattern for your base.

Step 2

Now, trace your pattern onto a piece of sturdy cardboard and cut out the shape.

Step 3

Lay the base on dark pink cardstock and trace the pattern. Cut it out, then adhere it onto the cardboard base.

Step 4

Cut 1" x 11" [2.54 cm x 27.94] strips of cardstock from the "Flamingo" cardstock value pack.

Step 5

To make rolls, wrap a paper strip around a wood skewer and adhere the end.
TIP: The roll can be tight or loose, depending on the size of the desired roll. You can also add a second or third strip to make the roll even thicker. For a looser roll, you can roll the strip around a pencil. A smaller middle hole will result when you use a thin skewer and the hole will increase in size as you increase the implement you roll the paper around.

Step 6

To make rosette flowers, cut a circle out of cardstock, then cut a spiral into the circle. Now, take the end of the spiral and roll it into the center. You can let the paper unroll a bit to loosen the rosette. Use hot glue to secure the rosette to the circle at the end of the spiral.

Step 7

To make a fringe flower, simply cut fringe all along the strip, stopping about ¼" [.64 cm] from the edge. Now, roll the flower. Add additional fringed strips to increase the size of the flower. Fluff the fringe when you're finished.

Step 8

To make the various types of teardrops, take a paper strip and adhere the two ends to one another. You can shape the teardrop as needed. Use the image as a guide for ideas on different uses of the teardrop shapes. To adhere these to the base, carefully line the bottom edge with hot glue and quickly but gently press it onto the base.

Step 9

To make the layered circles, choose paper from a paper pad and punch out 2" [5.08 cm], 1½" [3.81 cm] and 1" [2.54 cm] circles. Stack them with adhesive foam squares in between each layer to give them some dimension, then decorate them with the various embellishments.

Step 10

Use hot glue to adhere each element to the base and fill in spaces using the rolls or teardrops.

Step 11

Finally, adhere some twine to the top, back of the heart to make a hanger.
