Woven paper heart Valentines


Jaime set a high bar for Valentines for the children. Handmade, non-candy, and cute. I remembered helping a class make these when one of the girls was in elementary school. Since I couldn't remember how to make them, I did what we do now. I googled it. I found this great tutorial. I practiced a couple times and then success! Here's what I made: 
I started simple with only 3 weaving strips. I started getting a little braver with the purple and yellow heart. Once you start making them, they get easier and easier.


I put a few packets of fruit snacks inside for the non-candy treat. All the grandkids love them.
Now I just need to get them in the mail.

These look like fun and a great way to use scrap paper. FOr some reason they remind me of Project Runway's leather mesh dress.
