crafting with grandma - Paper Stuffed Hearts

Valentine Crafts and Recipes 32I was browsing on Pinterest and found a great idea for making paper hearts . . . not the typical, one-dimensional paper hearts you might first think of, but big, puffy, beautiful stuffed hearts!

Follow this link and you'll find all the directions . . . this is a simple enough pattern you could have your grandchildren make them to give their parents or school teachers! I think it would be fun to make smaller hearts and then give them to the secretaries at school and church, and a smaller size would be nice for shut-in neighbors, too!

It could also be fun to take this basic idea, but paint your grandchildren's hands to make handprint hearts and then cut them out and finish them as you would for the fully painted hearts! Hmmm . . . this is an idea I may try!

So, what do you think? Is this a paper heart you might make with your grandchildren? Enjoy!
