NEW! I created a special edition print-at-home Greyjoy pattern card. See it here.

Winter crafting wouldn’t be complete without some artistic activities for Valentine’s Day. Following in the theme from the Game of Thrones-inspired snowflake patterns, I’ve created heart-shaped paper cutouts using interpretations of the Lannister lion, Baratheon stag, Targaryen dragon, and Stark direwolf sigils. And, like the snowflakes, I’m sharing these patterns for free! Read on for instructions and downloadable patterns.

Fair warning: this set is a bit more challenging than the snowflakes because there are a number of inside cuts that need to be made. Unless you’re clever with scissors, or are OK with cutting across the fold lines and reassembling later, I recommend a scrapbooking or X-Acto knife for the detail work.

Recommended supplies:

  • Scrapbooking or X-Acto knife.
  • Printed pattern(s), one per sheet.
  • Scotch tape
  • Scissors

Now on to the cutting. Illustrated instructions also follow.

  • Print one pattern on a sheet of paper.
  • Cut out the bounding square.
  • Using the vertical dashed line as a guide, fold the square in half so the design is facing you. This is the only fold you need to make.
  • I recommend taping together the 2 sides of the paper so it doesn’t move while cutting. Fold tape over the bottom and top sides, making sure the tape is only sticking to the empty gray areas.
  • Using a scrapbooking or Xacto knife (or, if you’re clever, scissors) cut out the inner gray areas of the design. White areas remain uncut. I prefer to start with the smaller details first and cut out the larger chunks later.
  • After you’ve cut the inner areas, you can use scissors to cut the outer shape of the heart.
  • Unfold your valentine heart and enjoy! You can glue it to red paper, your windows, and anything else you can think of.

They’ll look something like this when finished.

Feel free to use these for your personal use. However, please do not use for commercial uses or claim you are the designer, as these were designed by hand. As always, Game of Thrones is copyright George R.R. Martin / HBO; I’m spreading the cheer for fun :)

  1. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today.|

  2. As always I love your designs. The snowflakes were a HUGE hit on our Christmas Gifts. So I have a feeling these Valentine’s Hearts will be a hit as well. Are you looking to design others as the creativity flows as you did with the snowflakes or are other projects needing to be attended too? Again, well done!!

    • Amber, thanks for your comments and glad to hear that the snowflakes were popular at Christmas!

      I’m not sure yet if I will include as many houses for the hearts, but if the creativity/time arises, I’ll make sure to add them :)

  3. Thought I would check-in to see if imagination had stuck, and to my excitement you have added two more. The Martell one is so cute, I know it will be a huge hit with my daughter. Arryn’s is gorgeous!! As always, well done. :)

    • Thanks again Amber! I’m glad that your daughter will enjoy the Martell pattern!

  4. This was a wonderful find. Thank you so much for sharing your work. I try to do some kind of craft for my husband every year and he loved the Targaryen and Stark ones I managed to cut out before he got home, so now he’s asking if he can do the rest!

  5. Loved the Christmas snowflakes, and these are equally wonderful. Now I have something to do while being snowed-in. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I’d love to see a house Tyrell one. I’ve got a silhouette cutting machine which basically cuts things out on paper so you don’t have to do it by hand, I’d love to make these and the snowflakes but I need the white and grey template of the full designs since it can only cut flat pieces of cardstock or paper. I hope to be able to make some to decorate with they’re just super cool.

  7. I am doing these on my laser cutter after converting them to SVG and they are turning out great. Krystal, send me an email if you would like the SVG versions I did.

  8. I love these! My fiancé and I are having a GoT themed wedding- could I use the stark pattern for our save the dates?

    • Sure! Go for it…would love to see pictures from how they turn out if you’re willing to share!
