No Joke, I made this heart 7 years ago! Here it is the first year:
It first appeared on my mom’s site on this post.
How did I make it? It was a lot like the NYE numbers.
1-I cut a cereal box into the shape of heart(this was the hardest part for me!?)
2-Using crepe paper from the dollar store(left from my daughter’s 3rd birthday lol) and I used House of Smith’s tutorial (I posted this per her permission) for the rosettes.
3-Then I hot glued the rosettes onto the cardboard.
4-Then I hot glued ribbon onto the back of the cardboard and hung it up.
It takes time, but you could do this whole thing for $3 or less! The pink crepe paper comes in packs of two, so you’ll probably only need one pack!
Here it is 7 years later and I still love it:
I’ve had to replace rosettes and ribbon throughout the years, but overall, it’s been pretty great! The pink has faded a little, but I still love the look! I cannot believe how long it’s lasted!
What you you think? Has it stood the test of time? Or do I need to move on and make another one?
Love you all! Have a great Valentine’s Day!
