An Easy Valentine Snowflake....and a winner...

All you need is 9 paper bags, a glue gun and a pair of scissors:

You stack the bags, one by one, by gluing each one with a "T" shape strip of glue and layer each bag this way:

Quick and easy - almost impossible to make a mistake:

Cut a triangle off each corner of the top of the stack of bags:

Cut a 1/2 heart shape out of each side  (or a triangle):

Then you spread open the bags and glue the two opposite ends together and glue on a string as a hanger!

These are so simple to make and only take a few minutes.  Paper bags can be purchased at the dollar store, so they are also inexpensive.

And all of the 1/2 hearts you cut out can be opened up to make some "heart confetti":

Easy Peasy!
