Make a giant heart pouch

Here at Lars, we can’t get enough of these heart-shaped Valentine’s Day crafts! This giant heart pouch is super easy to make, plus it’s created from paper! These giant heart pouches also make for great Valentine’s Day boxes. This craft is pretty kid-friendly, so everyone can make a heart pouch of their own!

Scroll down for the full tutorial!

You’ll Need:

Because you can never exploit a craft too much. (Oh wait…chevron!) Yesterday I turned the paper Danish heart into a leather pouch to carry your little trinkets in–I currently use mine for my earphones–and today I thought I’d go the extreme opposite and show a GIANT paper Danish heart that would be perfect for little kiddy Valentine’s instead of a traditional box. Apparently, the box is a big deal as some mommies have been telling me lately. This one takes 5 minutes, so if you’re into time management, might I suggest it.

How to make a giant heart pouch

Materials:

  • 4 pieces of Canson pastel paper (from the art supply store. Doesn’t have to be Canson, just any art paper will do)
  • scissors
  • tape or glue
  • template (download here)

Instructions:

  1. Use the template and enlarge it to fit the size of the Canson art paper. I filled the entire sheet.
  2.  Cut the pattern out onto 4 pieces of paper, two in each color of your choice.
  3.  Tape the two similar colors together at the bottom or glue them together.
  4.  Follow the same process as THIS post to weave the two together.

DONZO. Seriously, so easy and major impact. You know what I mean?!
