Are you familiar with the brown masking paper that is used when painting? I found a roll of 9? brown masking paper at my local hardware store. The brown paper is lightweight but does not tear when working with – it’s amazing!

I am using the brown paint masking paper today to create paper hearts. We featured Paper Sack Hearts, by The Tattered Tag on Feature Friday Week 1. She made Valentine hearts by recycling paper bags. I love the project and thought I would make a variation of the craft.

Materials Needed:

  • 9? Roll of Brown Paint Masking Paper
  • Elmer’s Paint Pens
  • 1/4? Hole Punch
  • Ribbon-to-Bead 1 spool
  • Fiberfil (stuffing)

Instructions:

1. Begin with the brown paint masking paper that can be found in the paint department of your local hardware store. Recycled paper bags will work but I found them more likely to tear.
