Valentines Paper Heart Chain Tutorial

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.

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

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.
