Get it? Valentwines... twine? *snicker* Oh I crack me up. Ish.
Right! So this is wicked easy. Supplies are cheap... and you only need a couple things.

Twine (or yarn, or string... ) and some kind of fabric stiffener. I got this stuff by Plaid... called Stiffy. Yes it is really called that. I know, I can't believe it either!  Could you use podge? I don't know... but if you try it, let me know!
So lay out some wax paper over your flyers if you are paranoid that the entire bottle of Stiffy will tip over and ruin your coffee table crafting station. (Oh! woven door mats for a buck?! I bet they would make a good tote... hmm).  Dip the twine into the bottle and as you pull it out remove the excess stiffener with your fingers. Form the twine into a heart (or egg, or shamrock, or initial... hmmm....) shape onto the wax paper - and you can add a little bit more of the solution to it to make sure it, um.. stiffens. (Excuse while I disintegrate into a fit of giggles... it's official I am a 12 year old boy. Stiffy!? *snicker*)  Leave it to dry, it doesn't take long, and you could probably speed it up with the hair dryer. It will stick to the wax paper, just pull it up every now and then so it's not glued right to it.

Then you could string a few together or hang them here and there...  easy and cute.
