How To: Paper Hearts for Singles Awareness Day

Singles Awareness Day (or Valentine’s Day) is coming up! Are you looking for something more than a pre-made card, something that shows you have the sentiment even if you don’t have the cheddar for a pricey gift? Something that can be completed in less than an hour? Read on!

Geometric Paper Heart Card (or Wall Hanging)



Fold square paper on the diagonal; use the fold line as a guide to cut or cleanly tear your paper into triangles.

Arrange triangles in the following pattern onto surface (colors are used to indicate direction of the triangles, not necessarily the pattern the papers should take).

Adhere pattern to surface.
