Happy heart week SCT readers!  Today I’m going to show you a few Valentine’s themed pieces that I created. 


Everything here is super easy to make, takes just a little bit of time and a few supplies.  The wreath was made from only three sheets of paper!  You can use double sided but I chose to keep it single sided knowing that it would eventually end up hanging on my gray wall.  I cut 1”X12” strips and used my stapler to make the entire thing. 

Next I made little popcorn boxes…


I cut the boxes using my Silhouette machine, fastened them together and added a Sizzix die-cut heart to the corners.  Two punched holes allowed me to place the red paper straw through the corner (and through the heart).  The arrow tips and tails were cut free hand and added to little slits cut into the straw.  I chose to fill the boxes with popcorn but they’d be great with just about any goodie (and perfect for group treats or even parties). 

Happy crafting heart themed décor and projects this week!
