How to make a paper heart garland.
Start by cutting out the paper strips that you will use for your heart. We used four for each side. Cut out the strips for one side first, each strip should be the same width but you’ll need to cut each strip to a different length as you can see above. For out largest strip we used the length of a piece of a4 paper and then we cut each one down by a couple cms each time. Once you have your four strips cut out four identical ones to make the other side of the heart.
Take the smallest strip and add a dab of glue to one end pull the other end round into a tear shape and pinch the two ends together until stuck.
Next take the second shortest strip and again add glue to one end. Attach it to the point of your first tear drop shape and then take the other end and glue it down onto the other side of the tear drop to create a second layer.
Repeat this process with the remaining strips you have for this side
Repeat the previous steps to create a second tear drop shape.
To hang your hearts as part of a garland or as an individual decoration; Cut out a small rectangle strip the same width as the strips you used to make your heart and punch a hole at one end.
Glue the two sides of the heart together with the hanging strip to dry. Repeat this process to make as many hearts as you need, once dry use the hole punched part of the strips to thread the strings through and create your paper heart garland!

Take the corner from the left side and fold it in to the centre then repeat this process with the right corner to make a kite shape as above.
Cut out two equal teardrop shapes, take one of the teardrops and cut it directly in half from the point. Take the two halves and glue them onto the whole teardrop facing slightly outwards to make the tulip head. Repeat this process until you have the desired amount of flower heads.
Next cut out some thin rectangle stalks and some pointed leaves. Glue the flower heads onto the stalks and then add the leaves.
Stick the flowers down inside the bouquet.
Glue down the two sides of the bouquet and the cut out your heart shape and glue it on to the front of the bouquet. Finally finish your adorable paper flower bouquets with a cute personalised message.

They’re super simple, quick to make and are perfect for a whole range of occasions such as valentines day, fathers day, mothers day and more!

How to make our heart shaped pizza cards
Take your pizza base coloured card and fold it in half. Using the bottom corner as the point draw a heart onto the card. Remember to leave part of the fold intact otherwise you’ll end up with two heart shapes rather than one heart card! Once happy with your shape, cut it out.
Cut out a slightly smaller red heart and glue it centrally on to the front of the card.
Now its time to cut out your toppings and glue them onto the front of your card. We went with a classic cheese, ham and mushrooms!
Finish off by adding a special message on the inside and your pizza heart card is ready to gift!
