Show someone you care about them by making one of these sentimental hearts!

I found this idea in a book I was reading and wanted to try it out. These little hearts are great for any occasion and are extremely easy to make. All you need is a dollar bill or a 2 1/2 inch by six inch piece of paper.

Step One: Take your dollar bill and fold it in half length-wise, also known to some as “hot-dog style”, and make a crease.
