Instructions (Heart):

  • Trace templates of large heart onto several pieces of construction paper or recycled cardboard. Cut around.
  • With a black marker trace smaller heart in the center of large hearts.
  • Make a small hole at the top of heart and insert a ribbon or string.
  • Cut crepe or tissue paper into 2 x 2 inches / 5cm x 5 cm.
  • Using the round end of the Japanese chopstick, twist a square of crepe paper around it and hold it. Some participants may prefer to use a pencil with eraser tip.
  • Still holding it, dab a little glue on the crepe paper.
  • Take it to the edge of smaller heart and gently release the chopstick. (See video).
  • Continue doing this until all the edges of the center heart are complete.
  • Then fill in the center of the heart by the same process.
  • Repeat the above to fill the borders of the heart and then continue to fill in the other parts.

Hi, I recently made the Easter bunnies with this activity, To see the shape more clearly I trimmed the curled paper down. The heart shape would be fine with the original instructions. The bunnies are on display and look really terrific.
