The door I live behind...

Ok, so this honestly took me about 15 minutes to do, so no excuses people! Creativity doesn't have to take forever and a day! Anyone can knock this one out.

First I took an old book that I knew I would never ever read again and cut up a bunch paper hearts in every shape and size from the pages. I folded the pages in half in every direction (that way the words would be going in all directions) before cutting out the hearts. 

Then I had some fun taking pictures of my little hearts. This one is my favorite from the bunch. These would also look wicked cute in a mason jar. 

After playtime with my camera, I turned on some Disney music and sat in front of my boring dorm door. Armed with stick tape and inspiration, I began to work. First I stuck some hearts in a curvy row. This was the "skeleton" that I would build off of. I added the bigger hearts to the bottom and slowly worked my way up "fattening" up the curve.

There are so many variations you can do with this. Try using newspaper, magazines, pictures, tissue...anything! Even different shapes would work. Dots or bird silhouettes would be so striking!

Stay crafty people and to all a good night!
