Our hanging potpourri heart would make a great Valentine's day gift for your sweat heart but moms, grandmas and teachers would also love to receive this thoughtful gift. Not only is it a beautiful Valentine decoration but it smells good too.

Our sample was made with a cookie cutter that is 4" wide x 3 1/2" high. All measurements are given to fit that size cookie cutter. You can use any size cookie cutter you have just adjust the length of ribbon and sequin strand to fit your cookie cutter.
