Somehow I misplaced our Winter Ceiling Love (felted polar bears and snowballs) along with the Valentine's Day accessories so I had to come up with something new this year. As soon as I saw the quilled heart kit in Paper Source I knew I had found my replacement.
I decided to pass on the kit and make the hearts on my own. I bought three sheets of scrapbooking paper (12 x12): 2 red and 1 pink. I cut the paper in strips about 1.25 inches wide (the width of my ruler) and 12 inches long. Then I folded all the strips in half. Finally I used a long screw driver to tightly roll the edges of the paper strips inward to create hearts. After all the hearts were complete I strung them on red and white baker's twine. To do this, cut a tiny triangle in the middle of 'V' part of the heart. String the twine through and knot where you want the bottom of the heart to rest (you may have to do 2 or three knots depending on how big you cut your triangle. Finally use double-sided tape to keep the lobes of the heart together.
