Danish Paper Heart Baskets for Christmas

My friend Jane came over yesterday so I could teach her how to make Danish paper heart baskets. These have been a tradition in our family ever since we were married forty-nine years ago. All of Wayne's grandparents were from Denmark and the family retained many Danish Christmas customs here in the United States. My mother-in-law taught me to make these hearts in the early years of our marriage and they have been on our tree every year, each filled with sweet treats. This one is designated for one of our grandchildren who will be here on the 25th.
