2. To fashion the heart, fold the cord over itself to create a small loop about 14 inches from the left end. Feed the right end up through the loop, as shown.

3. Loop the right end back around, threading it down into the upper loop and then up through the lower loop, as shown. At this point, the knot will essentially resemble a loop within a loop.

4. Pass the same end you’ve been working with under the knot and up through the bottom portion of the center loop. Next, thread the end down through the center of the knot and back up through the top portion of the center loop.

5. Turn the cord so that the loose ends are at the top. Now shape the knot into a more defined heart by gently pinching the bottom into a V and slightly separating the top halves.

Now you can share your gift with a friend or family.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
