Long stemmed hearts in a variety of colors are perfect for Valentine’s Day.

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I have been playing around with paper hearts. My favorite I have dubbed the Long-Stemmed Heart. I started out making the traditional red heart. Then I decided to add pinks and purples. Why stop there? I got a little carried away and have made the hearts in all sorts of colors. Then it was time to play with different color combinations for the bouquets.

Purples and blue look great. You don’t always have to have red hearts.

Here I went with reds, pinks and purple long stemmed hearts.

Here I went with cool colored Long-Stemmed Hearts.

Unlike roses, my Long-Stemmed Hearts won’t wilt after a week and never need watering. In fact, it’s highly advised that you don’t.

I hope this inspires you.

Enjoy, Candy

  1. Can I get your instructions for the Long-Stemmed Hearts?

    • Mindy, I haven’t posted the instructions for these because they are a bit complicated. When I originally made them, I wasn’t thinking about teaching them. I am working on trying to make the design less complicated. Right now I cut, fold, punch holes, sew through all the folds, wrap the bottoms and then push through the skewer. I will email you personally. Meanwhile, I am hoping to streamline the design and share the instructions early next year (in time for everyone to make some for Valentine’s Day 2016).
