Materials for Heart Valentine Holder

 

Directions for Making Heart-Shaped Valentine Holder

1. Cut the front and back sections off of a brown paper grocery bag. Cut one large heart out from each piece so you have two paper bag hearts.

2. Decorate your paper hearts. We used a circle-shaped sponge to stamp circles on our hearts with tempera paint, but you could easily just cut a circle out from a kitchen sponge.

3. Once the paint has dried, stack your two hearts and use a single hole punch to punch holes along the sides and bottom of the hearts.
