What a great Xmas gift, people <3 I appreciate all your comments dearly and I am overjoyed by all the feedback and nice comments!

The file is pretty big, so download the png if you want to see the full thing.

I've been doing all sorts of Christmasy Stuff lately and figured I'd make a little Step by Step of the Popular Swedish heart!

These are common tree decorations for us Swedes.

You can use any material really. Papers, magazine ads, Felt... anything that's an flexible sheet.

Oh, I remember making these hearts back when I was a child! We would make them for Valentine's day, however, and I had no idea it was a Swedish tradition. Thank you for the for reawakening the memory! :D
