This Valentine’s Day Tissue Paper Banner Craft is so easy! I wanted to do a craft with my youngest son who is in preschool, however, I didn’t have much time. Only about 30 minutes.

Inspired by our recent paper snowflake making, I decided to try heart-shapes out of rectangular pieces of tissue paper. While my son didn’t feel comfortable drawing his own shapes, he loved cutting out the shapes I drew for him. Since tissue paper is delicate, I left a lot of space on the Valentine’s Day banners to help them last a little longer.

The supply list for this Valentine’s Day craft is short:

I used long rectangular pieces and shorter pieces about 8 x 11 in size. Use Washi tape to frame the tissue paper banners on the window for some extra color, or just use short pieces of Washi tape to attach the banners to the window.

My 5 year old son and I used the left over hearts to make homemade Valentine’s Day cards. Add in some Washi tape and Sharpie permanent markers for additional fun. Don’t forget to dig into your leftover Valentine’s Day kit supplies for leftover sparkles and foam shapes.
