I am on overload. I cannot get enough of these cute and simple book crafts I have been creating. Today is no different. This crinkle cut Valentines heart swag is on for the books! Get it? I will announce now, that this is the last book craft I will be showing you for a while. Lets call it my book craft series….r something like that. All these crafts I have brought to you are so easy and quick, they can truly be done is less than an hour and cost almost nothing. Promise.
What you will need for this project: ( these are all great items to have in your collection. I use these on so many of my projects. It is a very small investment for many years of use.)

The first thing I did was tear out some book pages. Then started to cut out my hearts. I made my hearts all different sized to create some interest. For some I took two book pages together and cut a half of a heart on them.
This way I had identical sides to the heart. I then hot glued them together in the center.
Once they were cooled down, I began to fold them into a crinkle cut heart, or like a fan. Whichever you prefer.
I made some other heart by folding a book page in half and cutting the half of a heart in it, which when unfolded, reveals a full heart.
For the crinkle cut pattern, I folded some horizontal and some vertical to add texture.
Once they were all folded I then spread them out. I used my hole punch and punched the hole near the top, but far enough down to prevent it tearing through the paper.
I tied my twine through the hole and left a few feet of twine to hang it from. I staggered the length of the twine to keep all the hearts staggered. I tied them off about a foot above the hearts.
For this set, I decided to give my old cow a pretty little piece of jewelry. I tied the swag to another piece of twine and then tied it around her neck. Doesn’t she look pretty?
I love how my crinkle cut Valentine heart swag coordinates nicely with some of the winter decor I still have up. Hey, we just got almost 2 feet of snow today, so I have good reason to keep it up.
Try this craft out. It would be great in other varieties of paper as well. If you have a stockpile of scrapbooking paper like I do, this would be a great project to use those for! I hope you have enjoyed this project and if you would like to see more of my book projects, check these out:
Have a great day!
