A Paper Heart

Yahoo for another Valentine's Day project! This little heart is all about creating a paper quilt.  It makes great wall art for a girls room & it was just too cute not to share. 

Grab your favorite paper stacks, a ruler, pencil, double sided tape, & scissors. 
Contact paper is not necessary but it will help your project move quicker.

All you need to do is fold a piece of blank paper in half and cut out the shape of a heart.

Working on one side, make a central dot and create lines using your ruler.

Number your sections. This is what it should look like. 

Keeping your paper folded, cut each section. 
As you re-open it, number the opposing side as well.
The only purpose this serves is to move your project along more efficiently in case
your pieces get moved.
Same idea goes in case you want to make a puzzle heart.

Working piece by piece, trace your section onto cardstock and cut.

To create the heart into one piece, I used the contact paper.
It's pretty easy & forgiving if you need to move your shapes for a tighter fit.

At the end, fold over the contact paper so that your able to cut the 
heart out completely without all the fuss:)

 Place the heart onto a contrasting background.
That's it! Isn't it adorable?
I think I'm going to add a little button in the center:)

Happy Trails:)
