This weaved heart tutorial is from splaneyo.blogspot.com

This is a really cool website, but unfortunately in Korean!

Here we go:

To make the Valentine holders, you will need two pieces of different colored paper.

I used two jumbo 12 x18″ sheets, but it also works with regular sheets – you will just get a smaller heart.

Fold each paper in half.

Cut the folded paper in half.

On the unfolded side, cut to round the tops – these will become the top of the heart.

On the folded side cut your strips for weaving. I used 4 strips and that seemed to be a manageable amount for 2 graders. Each strip was 1 1/2″ and I cut up the piece 6 1/2″. Whatever size paper you are using, when cutting the length of the strips be sure to leave a little bit of wiggle room because you will need it to weave in the final strip.

To begin weaving, hold each paper, folded side down, at a 90 degree angle.

Starting with the upper strip, begin weaving through the strips. Just remember “through”.

Once you are you are ready to weave your final strip, make sure that all of the other woven strips are pushed upwards because you are going to need the “wiggle room” you allowed for when cutting the strips.

Once the final strip is woven, push all of the woven strips down – it just looks better.

The final check – open the heart. If you did it right, your should have a pocket.

The last step is to add a handle. You can cut a strip of paper for the handle, or use some string. I found some cute heart brads, so we attached our handles with those.
