Put a little love....in everything
I used these hearts to fill up a birthday present I was mailing to my fiance. I just kept cutting hearts out, until I had amassed thousands. It's a great activity to do while watching tv, or waiting for the laundry.

I found this very therapeutic! I grabbed a magazine that had interesting cardboard textured pages and grabbed four leafs at a time and folded them in half equally toward the middle of magazine and cut out hearts at randomly yet interesting coloured parts of the page that was showing. Then I took the hearts and looked at them. It was very interesting what pictures and different designs came out. cool.Love
