You will need:
patterned papers, cardstock (I used the 12 by 12 size)
Scissors, paper cutter
curling ribbon or other ribbon
(hole punch- optional)
Cut the paper w/ the paper cutter into 1 inch strips. For variety, you can cut some larger.
To make a heart: fold a strip right in the middle and crease it. Then bring the ends together and staple, forming a heart. You can add another smaller heart in the middle or make larger hearts by using two strips of paper. You can also use two strips together when making a heart, so you have a pattern on both sides.
Staple or tie curling ribbon to hearts to hang up. You can also use a hole punch to punch a hole for the ribbon to go through.
Be creative! We made hearts in all different arrangements and hung them from our
ever-so-not-pretty kitchen light! It made it look lots better- and much more l-o-v-ely!
Happy Valentine's Day!
