I just went on a valentines rampage! These are for my sister and her family. The basic structure -- nested paper hearts folded and tied with ribbon -- is straight from marthastewart.com (there are some amazing valentines ideas over there). The insides are collaged images from magazines and comic books, with cut-up origami paper and some amazing letraset I found in Paris last year.

If I would've known how to make these in elementary school, I totally would've been the coolest kid in the class. Now I want to make my own!

Thanks everyone! They were pretty easy to put together, and I had a lot of fun making them.

Off to the mailbox! I hope these little love crafts get a warm reception ...

Those are SO COOL! I love the superman and batman ones. x) How did you make those? I think I could figure out how to make them, but how do you have the ribbon on the back??

Hee, thanks a lot! I'm glad you like them. The comic ones are my faves too.

Here's how I make them ...

First I cut out the two sizes of heart. I line up the smaller one where I want it placed on the larger one, and then I fold them together into the envelope shape -- just folding the sides in first, then the top and bottom. Then I separate the hearts.

I cut two small slits in the top and bottom folds of the large heart, and feed the ribbon through (Diagram #1!). Then I glue the smaller heart to the bigger one, concealing the cleverly threaded ribbon (Diagram #2).

You can find similar instructions at marthastewart.com.

After that, it's just a mad, slapdash collage frenzy! The superhero images came from some old Batman and Superman comics that I had left over from another craft project.

Have fun! I'd love to see yours if you make some!
