Christmas Paper Hearts / Julekurver

120_julekurver7Ever since my grandmother taught me how to plate Christmas paper heart over forty five years ago I’ve made a new batch every year. Some to hang on the Christmas tree, some to give away and some so small that I make Christmas cards by gluing them on to good quality handmade paper.

Making these hearts has a long tradition in Scandinavia and you can buy nice glossy paper made especially for this, but any coloured paper will do. If you like to try your hands at making a few, start with the simplest patterns and work your way up.

On the page you’ll find by clicking the link below you’ll find both a video showing the technique and lots and lots of nice patterns and ideas.
