While I’d like to take credit for these, I didn’t come up with the idea myself. I saw it on Pinterest, and all I can say is that I did go to the store myself and I punched the designs into the paint chip cards. Not much effort on my part, but I’m still impressed that I did it…
The Younger and I had a good time with these, after a lot of silent cursing and bruised thumbs because I bought the worst craft punches ever. She got to cut the ribbon and told me where to punch the hearts and stars, and then she did some “free” art with the cutouts.
I used the above supplies, but you don’t need anything other than the paint chip cards and the heart punch. I just prefer smooth corners, so I used my scrap-booking corner cutter.
When she lost interest, she moved on to her own artwork. Needless to say, she had a great time! I saved all the tiny hearts she didn’t use, because I’m sure we’ll come up with something fun to do with them!
