Love From Heckerty

Day 8 – You Have My Heart

You Have My Heart – A Banner for Your Military Loved One

Valentine’s Day can be really tough when someone you love is serving overseas, or on a base somewhere in the country. So Zanzibar and I decided to make a special banner with a yellow/gold heart to symbolize our missing loved ones. It’s easy to make – and we hope you like it!

What you need:

  • construction paper in shades of pink
  • scissors
  • heart templates (we used cookie cutters)
  • ribbon
  • hole punch

You Have My Heart

Construction paper hearts and ribbon.

  • Carefully cut out hearts.
  • We used gold construction paper for the big heart and shades of pink and silver construction paper for the smaller hearts.
  • Then we punched holes in the sides of the hearts and strung the ribbon through.

You Have My Heart

Simple, pretty and meaningful!

The big gold heart in the middle really stands out – and you can add someone’s name, or Mom, or Dad – whatever works for you!

And that’s all there is to it!!!
