Hello, We R fans! Laura here today to share with you an easy and thoughtful gift idea for Valentine’s Day. You can make this love note heart piñata for your spouse, your child, or your best friend. They come together easily with only a few simple supplies. You can customize the design with any color fringe tape.
Start by using some scrap cardstock or patterned paper and punch a bunch of heart shapes using the heart clear cut punch.
Write out things you love about the person who is receiving the piñata. I made these for my kids, so I wrote little things I love about each of them like “you are smart”, “you are funny”, and “you are kind”. Personalize your hearts however you want.
Add twine loops to the top and bottom holes of your heart piñata. The top one allows you to hang the piñata, so be sure you account for that with the length of your loop. The bottom one is simply to allow the recipient to pull it open, so it doesn’t have to be too long.
Fill your piñata with all your folded heartfelt thoughts. Tape the bottom closed.
I love rainbows, so I thought instead of the traditional pink and red for Valentine’s Day, I would create a rainbow pattern using the fringe tape. Start at the bottom and work your way to the top. Cut separate strips to cover the sides.
Once you have your piñata all covered in fringe tape, trim around the outside edge of the heart to make it look a little neater. Now your Valentine’s gift is ready to give!
You could add some candies or small toys in with the paper hearts if you wanted. You could also add love, XOXO, or the person’s name to the front using Thickers or other alphabet stickers.
