Cut a variety of heart shapes out of tissue paper. In a small container, mix one part glue with one part water. Use a paint brush and spread glue on a piece of white paper. Arrange the tissue paper hearts on the glue as desired, but make the hearts overlapping. Add the glue and hearts to a small section of the white paper at a time. Once your hearts are placed on the glue, add more glue as needed so the hearts are completely covered. When done, set aside and let the glue dry.

When the glue is dry, cut the white paper around the hearts. Leave about 1/4 inch of white showing around the edges. Mount your picture on black, pink, or purple paper. Voila! A perfect valentine decoration or gift to someone you love.
