I went ahead and die cute lots of heart shapes using the Layering Basics Traditional Heart die set. I cut a few different sizes of hearts from a few different shades of pink cardstocks.
Once the die cutting was done, I had my kids help prepare all of the party decor! We made a LOVE banner by adhering the die cut pink hearts onto red foam letters.
We just adhered all the hearts randomly, but you could easily create a neat pattern with the small hearts. The kids sure had a lot of fun getting the banner done!
I strung the letters together with some twine and the banner was ready!
To create a heart backdrop, we die cut large heart shapes using the Layering Basics Traditional Hearts die set once again. We chose pinks and reds this time.
To make the backdrop, cut a desired length of twine, and sandwich the twine at places between a small and large heart shape. We added a heart about every 6 to 8 inches.
You can make these heart chains as long as you need and vary the colors as you hang them up on the wall. This is quick and easy way to make a large backdrop!
My daughter also wanted to make a few cards for the invitees. So we trimmed some pink cardstock using the V trimmer and then folded them to form cards. We then added hearts onto the cards to make them Valentine themed.
Finally, we also quickly decorated some treat bags with the die cut hearts. We will fill these with small treats and gifts for the guests!
Really, it’s that easy to create an entire Valentine themed party using just one die set! The options are endless, you can similarly create cupcake toppers, decorative items or food labels. Happy Valentine’s days to you all!
