Step 1: What You'll Need
14 Red paper squares (this were 3.5x3.5")
Double sided tape
Step 2: Mark an X
Place one of your squares in a table. Fold the corners to get an X like the picture number 4.
Take one of the corners to the intersection of your X and the opposite corner to the middle of the triangle you just folded.
Bring each side to the center line until you have two little triangles below.
Step 4: Round Up
Turn your shape upside down and fold the two corners in the top and the two in each side. Now you have a more rounded shape and when you turn it around you can see your heart.
Repeat the steps with all your red squares to get 14 hearts.
Step 5: Double Sided Tape
Cut squares of double sided tape and stick them behind all your hearts.
Step 6: Create Your Shape
Stick them to the wall, one by one to form the shape you want. I made a heart but you can do a letter or a gradient design too.
There you have it, a simple way to decorate your wall for a special occasion.
