This Valentine’s Tissue Heart is another fun DIY decorative piece for Valentine’s Day. It’s made from a piece of cardboard and tissue paper -no messy glue technique and no messy surfaces. It doesn’t take a long time to craft and can be done within an hour.
It’s a simple craft project that is also fun for kids. Shaping the little blossoms trains fine motor skills and attention to details. My boys helped me inserting the little tissue blossoms and actually enjoy it.
For this Valentine’s Tissue heart shown here, I used a hot pink tissue paper color, but you can choose whatever Valentine’s colors you like, such a s red, medium or light pink. They all look really charming.
List of materials:
1 piece of cardboard, not too thick so you can easily punch a whole with a whole puncher or pencil
1 hole puncher or pencil
2 sheets of tissue paper, whatever color you prefer
On a piece of cardboard draw the shape of a heart, in whatever size you prefer.
With a hole puncher punch holes around the heart. It will be hard to reach the inner part of the heart with the puncher, so you might want to switch to a pencil and punch in the rest of the holes. If you do not own a hole puncher you can use a pencil for all the holes. Make sure the holes are not too far apart, so the heart looks nice and full with the blossoms later.
Cut tissue paper into 4″ squares.
Twist the tissue square until it represents the shape of a blossom.
Twist a bit a bit more until the twisted part represents a stem.
Insert the stems of the blossoms into the holes.
Twist the stems of the blossoms a little over, so the blossom sit securely.
Attach a hanger in the back to decorate your Valentine Tissue Heart on the wall.
