To make uniform, decorative hearts, make a template with paper, fold a strip of tissue paper accordion style, trace the template, and cut the paper.

Once the base paper has dried, tack the heart on with a little glue, and paint over with glue. Use your imagination to create any design you like. Your special someone will love that you took the time to make something unique for Valentine’s Day.
