Make 3D paper conversation hearts for a cute and easy Valentine’s Day craft.
I have a fun little Valentine’s Day project idea for you today. I’m going to show you how to make 3D paper conversation hearts! I just love these colorful and cute hearts. I turned mine into a little Valentine’s Day banner, but you could use them as shelf decor or to fill up a glass vase or for a million other things! They’re really easy to make with the help of a Silhouette machine and you only need a few supplies.

- Pastel Colored Cardstock
- Adhesive Vinyl (I used THIS metallic vinyl in the color Gold Chrome Brushed)
- Transfer Tape
- Hot Glue + Glue Sticks
Step 1: Download the free files at the bottom of this post. Open the files in Silhouette Studio and resize or adjust placement as needed. Cut the hearts and paper strips out of cardstock, then cut the words from the vinyl. Weed the excess vinyl from the words.
Step 2: Transfer the vinyl words to transfer tape, then stick them onto the paper hearts. For each heart you make, you’ll need two paper hearts and two paper strips. Only put the words on one of the hearts.
Step 3: Glue the two paper strips together. Run a bead of hot glue about a 1/4 inch from the edge all the way around the heart.
Step 4: Starting at the top indentation of the heart, press the paper strip into the bead of hot glue and go all the way around the heart.
Step 5: Add another bead of hot glue around the back side of the other heart.
Step 6: Press the paper strips into the second bead of hot glue. The paper strips become the inside of the heart “sandwich,” if that makes sense.
Then it’s up to you what you want to do with the hearts after that. I attached mine to a pom pom garland and hung them up, but the possibilities are endless.
Cute. Easy. Yay!
