Valentine Garlands
February 8th, 2011 by Craftylocks

Both of these are super sweet and one is especially simple.

Hearts and garlands are just made to go together – the shape is so easy to cut out from the concertina folded paper. It was so easy I had to do another Valentine themed garland for you to try – this one involves a bit of planning, and although I usually cut first and plan later – this is still easy enough to work out really well.

Fold a strip of paper up until the front or face of it is about the right size for a picture. Draw on your picture making sure that the edges of the picture go on the edge of the paper.

Cut out the shape making sure you leave the edge of the picture not cut – you remember, that bit that is touching the edge of the paper. When you unfold your paper you will have a lovely row of hearts, unless you did some other shape – in which case it is entirely likely that you will have some row of shapes that are not hearts at all.

I love the way that the birds are kissing each other – perfect for a Valentine card. valentine-garland-5

This is a great paper craft for children to do independently, and to help them I have a Paper Garland Tutorial. For other garland ideas have a look at the Flower Paper Garland or the Halloween Garland ideas.
