Make a Paper Crafted Heart Ornament for a Valentine's Day Gift

Creating art with paper and paper tape allows kids to be really creative.  Without the need for glue or anything sticky, this is a great project for young kids or with a group of kids.

Items Needed

Chipboard Heart (I cut mine out with the Ellison heart die that I designed.)
Paper Scraps
Washi Tape
Hole Punch
Ribbon or Beads


Cover the heart with little pieces of paper. Add washi tape to cover the heart and hold the paper down. Punch two holes. Sting wire through, adding beads and wire if desired.
