I love simple craft ideas that use supplies I already have on hand. These tissue paper hearts are a great way to decorate a vase or mason jar, and are also perfect for scrapbooking and card making.

Step 1: Cut your tissue paper into squares. Apply a layer of Mod Podge over your parchment paper, and lay down squares of tissue paper, overlapping slightly. When layering the squares, you’ll probably need to add a bit more Mod Podge to make sure the squares adhere well. This is so fun for the kids, too, it’s impossible to do it wrong. Once dry, apply another thin layer of Mod Podge over the entire project. Let dry.

Step 2: Once completely dry, take your heart template (though you can use any shape you’d like), and trace a heart over your tissue paper. Cut out.

Step 3: Carefully peel off the parchment paper backings.

Step 4: Like I mentioned earlier, there are so many ways to decorate with these. I decided to create a fun vase out of my heart. I took a vintage glass bottle, used some Mod Podge Matte, and adhered the heart to the center of the bottle.
