If you have a special person in your life that you want to give a love note to, you may think of writing a poem or sentimental message on a sheet of paper. One way to make your love note more whimsical and sweet is to write it on a piece of coloured paper shaped like a heart. The paper heart can act as a greeting card on which you can write a message, while being its own symbol of love.

  1. 1

    Fold a sheet of red or pink construction paper in half width wise. Press the fold flat with your hand.

  2. 2

    Place the folded edge so that it is on the right, and draw out half of a heart along the fold. The middle of the heart should be the folded edge.

  3. 3

    Draw out a second smaller heart inside of the first heart, allowing the middle of the heart to be the folded edge of the paper as before.

  4. 4

    Cut out both of the hearts using scissors. This will leave you with a piece of paper with a heart cut-out in the middle, a large paper heart with a smaller heart cut-out in the centre and a small paper heart.

  5. 5

    Write a personal message on the paper love hearts using coloured pencils.
