brown paper lunch bags (5)
heart cookie cutter
So first, I traced some heart shapes on the red paper and cut them out...3 hearts to be exact. I had this sparkly paper left over from some invitations I made for B's Wizard of Oz birthday party one year.
Next, I placed a heart on the paper bag, the side without the flap and measured up about how high I wanted the triangle to be (4 inches in my case). Then drew a triangle and cut it out.
Using that first bag as a guide, I did the same steps on the other 4 bags (I also cut two bags at once to save time).
Then I hot glued a heart to 3 of the bags. If you are making this with a child, you could easily just use a glue stick. My paper was super think, so hot glue worked fine. But, with thinner paper, it might be better to use a glue stick anyway.
I always keep the yarn at either side extra long, it can always be cut shorter to fit where you want to hang it. Once the hot glue dried, I just flipped the bags over and ta-da!!!
Using some command hooks, I hung this up over a dresser in our hallway.
