Sometimes I use the paper and ribbon that I have hoarded.

3D heart ball thing

on January 11, 2012

If you take two heart-shaped pieces and cut a downward slit in one and an upward slit in the other,  you can put them together and have a three-dimensional heart.

More ideas

  • make a bunch and place in a pretty dish/bowl
  • make a bunch and string side by side to form a garland
  • make a bunch and string vertically
  • cut out large hearts for a more “statement-y” piece

I haven’t actually tried to make these so I don’t even know if this will work. But in my head, this is a fun project to make with young kids who are old enough to wield a pair of scissors. So maybe around five years old? (I don’t have kids and I don’t interact with them a lot so my expectations of what kids can do are pure guesses.)
