Heart Valentine Holder Made from a Brown Paper Grocery Bag
Materials for Heart Valentine Holder
- Brown paper grocery bag
- Single hole punch (I LOVE this single hole punch. It can punch through quite a bit with very little effort. Very handy when you’ve got a lot of hole punching to do!)
- Tempera paint (This is our absolute favorite tempera paint!)
- Circle-shaped sponge
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.
4. Cut off a long piece of yarn and use it lace the two hearts together.
5. Tie the string together at the top for hanging.
Use your heart valentine holder to collect all your valentines!
