Paper Hearts

>> Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Just like most of you, Pinterest is full of inspiration. I have been admiring these cute little hearts. They are so simple and super easy to make.

To create them in layers, Cut an even number of strips 3/4" x 4" and 3/4" x 3 1/2".

Layer together both sizes, smaller strip on the outside and larger strip on the inside. Place a favorite piece of ribbon or twine between both larger pieces (in the middle).

Staple the bottom end to hold all the pieces together and loop the smaller, outside strip into a heart and adhere the opposite end and repeat with larger loop, making sure it is flush with the smaller looped heart.

Or fold both large and small strips together at the opposite end and staple both ends together.

Pretty simple. I made a bunch of them & have them hanging around in bunch of branches in our family room & some hanging from our mantel. Love these & would so fun to make with your kids, too.

These are so cute! I can see the kids loving to make these. They could fight over the tiny stapler. ;)
