Valentine Heart Decor Tutorial

"Jesus Loves Me" is the focal point of this easy tissue paper heart I made with my daughter:
Print "Jesus Loves Me" in white letters on a red background & cut that out in a heart shape. Glue it in the center of a big cardboard heart (We cut ours out of a clean pizza box cover):
Next cut out piles & piles of white and red tissue paper squares:
Use the old-fashioned wrap-each-square-around-the-end-of-a-pencil-and-dab-it-in-some-Elmer's -Glue-method to fill in your Valentine decoration. Be sure to pack them in close so your design looks very full:Our red heart is framed in white. Finished size is 14" x 15". Add a little wire loop for hanging and you're done!

Love this. It reminds me of when my daughter was little. Her birthday is February 15th so we would sometimes use the Valentine/Jesus Loves Me theme for her birthday celebrations. Thanks.
