Valentines Paper Heart Chain Tutorial

This is from Craftzine!!! We all know they have some pretty cool stuff!

Materials

Paper Heart Chain:
6-8 sheets of colored paper,
not thick “construction” paper
Craft knife
Ruler
Cutting mat
Stapler

Directions

Heartchain Step1

Step 1: Using a ruler, cutting mat, and craft knife, cut colored paper into strips measuring 1″ x 4 1/4″ each. You’ll need 2 for each heart link. (36 strips equals a chain about 54″ long)

Note: Experiment with different types of paper. Copier paper is too flimsy and construction paper may not make smooth bends.

Heartchain Step2

Step 2: Stack 2 strips on top of each other and staple one set of ends together.

Heartchain Step3

Step 3: Bend the stapled strips around to match the unstapled ends together, creating a heart shape. Layer 2 more strips, one on each side, aligning all 4 ends. Staple through all 4 layers.

Heartchain Step4

Step 4: Repeat Step 3 and bend the last stapled strips around, layering 2 more strips, and stapling through all 4 layers.
Heartchain Step5-1

Step 5: Keep going until your chain is as long as you’d like. It’s addictive!
