It was really easy to make. All I needed was some colored paper, a pair of scissors, and a computer/printer. I brainstormed some fun sayings to put on the hearts and then just typed them in a document. (I used size 100 pt. font and centered the font on a landscape document.) I printed out each of the sayings on a different piece of colored paper like this:
After I printed out the words, I cut a heart template. I am not very good at cutting freehand so I figured a template would save me from having to reprint the hearts again and again. I just folded a piece of white paper hamburger style and then cut half a heart.
I then traced the template onto the printed sayings and cut them out.
Next I just used some sticky tack to hang up the hearts on our fireplace. You could use tape or even some ribbon to make a banner. I hung them in a rainbow, but you could do alternating colors or whatever your little conversation heart desires. Here are some upclose shots of my finished hearts:
And my personal favorite:
You can download my conversation hearts here, but it's pretty fun to come up with your own. I highly suggest it.
