Tissue Paper Heart Collage

Here's a quick & easy Valentine's gift for someone special.


How to make:
Cut a heart shape out of red paper & cover with glue. Scrunch up/fold/roll small pieces of coloured tissue paper & add them to the heart. Minnie added more glue & stuck on some sequins to add a little sparkle!




To make a framed heart I glued the heart shape to some pink card, & placed then inside an old photo frame.


A beautiful gift for Valentine's Day!


To turn our collage hearts into Valentine's we did the same as above, but stuck the heart onto some cream coloured card & cut around to make a border. We then glued this to a sheet of red card which we folded in half.




These make beautiful keepsakes, & are fun for children of all ages to design & create.

  3. So pretty. I must track down some more picture frames as its so lovely to turn what the children do into art to hang up.

  4. Thanks Anna, I completely agree. Minnie is so excited when she sees her artwork in a frame. If you're looking for photo frames I picked up some great low cost frames in Sainsburys recently.
