Tutorial Tuesday- Heart cut out Gift Wrapping

I thought I might start a Tutorial Tuesday as a place to keep all the crafty ideas I come across on the web, (mainly Pinterest). Those projects I hope to complete one day!

This one I found on The House That Lars Built

Materials for cut out hearts: x-acto knife, cardstock (or business card), pencil or pen, scissors, wrapping paper, cutting board, secondary color paper (I chose glitter scrapbook paper)

Step 1: Make a template of a heart on a business card and cut it out.
Step 2: With a pencil, use your template to trace around it all      over on your wrapping paper. Use a ruler if you want them evenly spaced. (a Sharpie was used in this tutorial so you can see the trace better).
Step 3: With your x-acto knife, cut around one side of the heart from the top to the tip of the bottom.

Step 4: Fold the heart over.

Step 5: Because the glitter paper was so thick I cheated and cut out a strip of paper to line along the backside of the kraft paper gift wrap. If I were to make it super nice I'd probably line the back of the kraft paper. But, then again, I probably wouldn't.

Step 6: Tape it down.

Step 7: Repeat on all the hearts.


Isn't it cute? It's geared towards Valentines Day but I think it makes the sweetest gift wrap. 

Do you think you'll try it?

Do you collect crafty ideas that you know you will probably never do?!
