My favorite thing about Valentine’s Day is conversation hearts. I love them. A concoction of sugar and food dye. Normally, I try to be healthy, but there are some sweets that I just succumb to and conversation hearts is one of them. (Gum drops, Dots, candy corn and jelly beans are a few others.)
Anyways, I made these paper conversation hearts for OnlineLabels.com. Click here for the complete tutorial. It’s so easy. You don’t have to use monochromatic candies, you can use colorful M&Ms if you want, whatever is easiest. I bought these candies at Fresh Market, but I know Party City sells solid colored ones as well.
Basically you put your candies in a ziplock bag, then staple it to cardstock or construction paper shaped like a heart. Then you cut out a second heart, cut out the inside and glue it to the first heart.
