Paper Locket Craft
This is a wonderfully simple gift to make. All you will need to do is print out the template (below), cut out the heart and loop strap. Create folds on the dotted line. and glue the 1/2 hearts to each other, creating 2 (attached) door-like folds. Next, glue the blank hear cut out to the back of your photo, to create a stencil, and cut out. Glue your picture to the center of your locket, looping the end of the strap between the photo and the back of your locket. Use a hole punch to poke a hole into the hole template on the "doors" of your locket. Thread yarn or ribbon through the "doors" and tie into a small bow. Then thread a longer string through your loop strap to tie around recipients neck.
