how to: paper hearts

these paper hearts are so simple to make. if you couldn’t figure it out just by looking, follow these instructions

first, cut several strips on newspaper about 1 inch wide. the longer the strips the larger the heart will be.

next, fold down the outer strips to form the loops of your heart, making larger loops as you go. I used about 8 strips per heart (for you special people, that makes about 4 strips per side).

when you’ve created the shape you want, you can staple or glue (I used paper clips because it’s what I had) your strips in place. to make the garland, repeat these steps and insert the “tail” of your heart into the top of the next one and secure.

if you get creative with these hearts let me know what you did!
