I’ve been on a huge crafting kick these past 6 weeks. I guess, it’s a good way to get through this harsh Wisconsin winter, right? My latest craft obsession — garland and bunting. It’s fun, decorative and the options are only limited by your own creativity! I wanted to share with you an easy and fun craft project that’s perfect for this upcoming Valentine’s Day: Love Letter Garland. Not only is this an adorable decoration for Valentine’s Day, you can insert little love letters into each envelope. It’s a fun way to spread some love during the month of February to a spouse, child or other special person.
Ten, 6″ x 6″ Pieces of Scrapbook Paper (to make the little envelopes)
Ten, 4″ x 4″ *or smaller* pieces of paper (to write your love notes)
6′ of ribbon, twine or string
Heart Template (download template >>)
Cut out the heart from the template. You will use this to trace its shape on the back of each piece of scrapbook paper.
With scissors, cut out each heart. These hearts will become your little envelopes.
Fold each side of the heart inward. Lightly crease each fold.
Turn the heart upside down and fold the curved part of the heart towards the point. Lightly crease the fold.
Fold the point of the heart down towards the middle to create an little envelope.
To keep the envelope together, use a glue stick and rub a dab on each end inbetween the folds.
Write little love letters and insert them in the envelopes. String the envelopes on a piece of twine or ribbon. Seal the envelopes with stickers or seals. The skies the limit on how you want to decorate these cute little envelopes. I strung some XOXO ribbon on each end to finish it off. Have fun with it! Enjoy. 😍
