What you need

  • our printable heart template HERE – you can also draw the template
  • pencil
  • printer
  • red construction paper
  • print paper (we used 5 sheets, you can use more or less)
  • scissors
  • glue
  • printer
  • ribbon- Shop HERE
  • drawing materials (crayons, pencils, markers…)

Optional: yellow paper (or any other color), biodegradable glitter, stickers, sequin…


Cut out the template or drawing

Fold a sheet of print paper in half

Fold it in half again

Place the heart template in the corner (the bottom of the heart in the corner with no open flaps). Trace the heart with pencil. Cut the heart out – only cutting along the upper part of the heart (the arches)

Unfold (you should get a “4 leaf clover” shape). Draw something nice or write a nice little message

Fold in half. *One heart at the top, two hearts folded in half*. Repeat with as many sheets of paper as you want – one sheet is one page of the book (well technically a 2 page spread).

Take one of the drawings. Unfold. What you need to do is push the “side hearts”, the ones that you folded in half in the previous step, inside. When done, you should get a nice heart shape. Repeat with all other pages.

Time to assemble the DIY heart notebook

Apply glue on one side of the heart. Press another heart shape on the first one.

Apply the glue on the next heart shape. Glue the third one on top of that. Continue until you run out of hearts.

Take the heart shape template again and trace it 2 times on the red construction paper. Cut it out.

Apply glue on the white heart shape (across all the surface) Place ribbon across the center of the heart (don’t cut the ribbon just yet).

Place the red heart on top. Turn to the other side, apply glue, ribbon and another heart.

Cut the ribbon (leave enough it can be tied in a bow).

You can leave the heart as is, or add a smaller heart inside the heart, using a different color.

You can add a message on the cover of your DIY heart notebook.

Tie the ribbon and you are done!
