DIY Printed Heartfelt Messages

Perfect for birthdays, baby or bridal showers, dinner parties and anniveraries, these DIY printable heart-inspired designs will let the person in your life know just how special they are.

I initially crafted these heart-inspired printables for a Valentine's Day dinner table, but I've repurposed them so you can incorporate a loving message into any celebration you're planning. I think they're absolutely perfect for a birthday, bridal or baby shower, anniversary or even a romantic dinner for two.

Use these designs to create personalized bows for a gift.

Or, craft a few of these designs and use as a conversation starting centerpiece.

Finally, we love the idea of creating a few for an impromptu dinner party one night - they'll take an ordinary meal and make it one to remember.

Visit MarkAddison.com to get the templates for each of these designs. Then, after you've crafted one of your own heartfelt messages, share with us how you celebrated someone you love in the comments section, below!


Colored Paper (Recommend A Heavier Stock)
Heart Template
Push Pin
24-Gauge Wire
Small Beads
Ribbon or Floral Tape
Hot Glue/Hot Glue Gun
Marker (Black, Gold, Silver, or Red)


Step 1: Using our template cut out six hearts of the same size and write loving notes on 2-3 petals using a marker.

Step 2: Stack hearts together and use a pushpin, make a hole near the pointed end of each heart.

Step 3: For the wire stem, cut a piece of wire 12-24” and fold in half. Thread 3 small beads onto the cut wire and twist the wire so the beads stay at the end.

Step 4: Thread hearts onto the wire until all the hearts are stacked against the bead. Twist the wire again to keep the hearts in place.

Step 5: Cover the stem with floral tape or glue ribbon around the wire
