Valentine's Day Hearts Card - hearts added and rhinestone stripThis Valentine's Day card that I will be give to my mom is made from tissue paper I received from my shopping trip at Victoria's Secret and other items I already had at home.


You could apply this concept to a Mother's Day card, birthday card, or bridal shower card and use other tissue paper for other themed cards also. I love how it turned out!

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1 card


  • tissue paper
  • ribbon
  • glue
  • Exacto knife
  • construction paper


  1. Figure out what size and color you want your card to be. My card is white, measures 8.5" long and 5.5" tall when folded in half.
  2. Valentine's Day Hearts Card - choose the size and color of paper for your card
  3. These strips will be for the spiral swirl hearts. I used a baby pink construction paper and cut into 1 cm thick strips by 8.5" length.

  5. Manually swirl the paper strips, or use a wooden dowel or bamboo skewer. Note: It takes 2 pieces per heart. I made 4 pieces to make 2 hearts. You can make more if you want more to be on your card.
  6. Valentine's Day Hearts Card - rolling around a skewer
    Valentine's Day Hearts Card - roll up the paper

  7. To form your heart, unravel a little bit of the swirl to make a heart shape. Glue the bottom tip then between the heart.
  8. Valentine's Day Hearts Card - glue the bottom tips of two swirls together to make the heart

  9. Using your tissue paper choices (I used a solid light pink and cheetah print, both free from my Victoria's Secret purchase), rip some pieces in assorted sizes.
  10. Valentine's Day Hearts Card - choose the tissue paper you will use
    Valentine's Day Hearts Card - rip into pieces of varied sizes
  11. The fun part is to glue down the tissue paper in any order or style you want. Don't worry if you go over the sides of the paper because you will cut excess with Exacto knife later. Tip: Cut a piece of sturdy cardboard to use as a guide to smooth out the tissue paper.
  12. Valentine's Day Hearts Card - ready to start gluing the tissue paper down

  13. Repeat until you have covered the entire card with tissue paper. Feel free to layer until you are pleased with your master piece. Cut remainder of tissue paper with an Exacto knife or trim all sides with scissors.
  14. Valentine's Day Hearts Card - continue gluing
    Valentine's Day Hearts Card -overlap if you like
    Valentine's Day Hearts Card - trim off excess with Exacto knife or scissors
  15. For finishing touches, secure heart shape down and a little bit of glam, I added rhinestone sticker ribbon. Ready for you to write your message on the inside of the card.
