Hearts on a String: Valentine’s Day Gift Wrapping Tutorial

Heart Valentine Gift Wrap Embellishment

I love using kraft paper for gift wrapping. Its plainness is the reason I gravitate to it. Kraft paper creates the perfect canvas for creative, statement packages. This string of hearts is so easy and inexpensive to make, and after the gift is opened, you can use it as table decoration or bunting.

Materials:

Heart Punch
Red Paper
Hole Punch, 1/8 inch
Red Yarn
Wrapped Gift

STEP 1 Punch Hearts

Use a heart-shaped punch to cut the hearts from red paper. I used this punch that I bought on Amazon. It is strong enough that I could cut through both sheets of paper at the same time. I cut 24 hearts for my shirt-sized gift box. Adjust according to your gift size.

Use a small punch to make holes at the bottom points of the hearts.
