  • Step 1: Begin by cutting the smallest center heart by folding a piece of paper in half and drawing a heart or just cutting the shape.
  • Step 2: Continue to the next layer by stacking the first heart onto the second paper and cutting it just a quarter of an inch (estimate) larger than the first.
  • Step 3: Continue cutting paper heart layers making each layer larger than the last.
  • Step 4: Cut the last layer out of sturdy cardstock.
  • Step 5: Cut a length of tissue paper or vintage sewing pattern into long strips.
  • Step 6: Run rolling adhesive tape around a section of the outside of the sturdy cardstock heart and fold the tissue paper as shown to create a ruffled border.
  • Step 7: Adhere the second largest heart over the ruffled paper border.
  • Step 8: Continue adding hearts from largest to smallest until all of the layers are assembled. You may wish to use glue dots to hold sturdier elements together.
  • Step 9: Attach a short length of Dippy Dots ribbon to the top for a hanger with a staple or glue dot.
  • Step 10: Attach 4” pieces of "LOVE" ribbon in between a couple of the layers.
