Cut two identical hearts from the cardstock. A quick trick is to fold the card stock in half, trace the pattern onto the top half of the card stock, and cut 2 hearts at once. You can use our printable heart template if you need one.
Use a hole punch to punch holes every 1/4 inch around the border of the heart. Match both hearts up and punch holes in them at the same time, so that the holes match up.
Thread the ribbon through the holes; leave about a 6-inch tail on the end.
Once the ribbon is threaded, cut the ribbon ends so both are equal (about 6 inches each), and tie them into a knot.
Tuck the tissue paper into the heart; you can glue it to hold it in place if you prefer.
Optional: Decorate your heart with a couple of stickers, or use a marker to add a message such as: "I Love You", or "Be Mine, Or, you can come up with a message of your own.
Fill the heart with candy or notes to give to your sweetie on Valentine's Day.
