Who else has at least one cardboard box in their garage at all times?? My family keeps Amazon BUSY so I always have cardboard on hand! Since I already have the cardboard on hand it’s great for creating projects just like these easy & budget friendly cardboard Valentine hearts! Come get all the details!
First up, I spotted these cookie cutters at Walmart on the Valentine aisle and they sparked this idea of stackable hearts! They were $1.24 for six sizes. I’ll decide which sizes I’d like to use and then trace each one with a pencil onto my cardboard before cutting out.
Here they are, all cut out and stacked up!! Let’s add a little character to these by exposing some of the corrugated layers!
Now I’m going to lightly spray the top of the cardboard to make the peeling process a little easier. You don’t have to use water for this part, I just think it helps. Peel away as much or as little of the top layer as you’d like.
Next I’ll add some paint. I think these hearts could definitely be left neutral with no paint if you’d like. I’m going to paint some and not others, combining them all together.
Once all the heart layers are just as I like them, I’ll use hot glue to stack them up and attach them to one another to bring these easy & budget friendly cardboard Valentine hearts together!
Finally, for or a finishing touch I’m adding stamped, torn material strips to the top! I LOVE how this looks!
I’m just in love with the neutral and romantic vibe of this project y’all! What do you think about this project??
