- scrap paper or tissue
- PVA glue

- small piece of wire
Step 1 – creating the basic shape
You can do this by hand or use a cookie cutter as a template.
Step 2 – cutting out
Step 3 – adding a simple loop
Tape the ends of the wire to the back of the heart but leaving the loop exposed. This is so you can hang your heart when it’s finished.
Step 4 – decorating
Cover both sides of the heart making sure you cover the bottom of the loop where it’s taped into place, but not the loop itself.
Once you have the desired effect give it a final coat of glue or clear varnish. When its dry to can add some ribbon to hang it by.
