Want to know how to create a Valentine’s Countdown Chain? One that is made of adorable hearts? This project is so simple and fun. And it’s sure to get your loved ones in the spirit no matter their age!
First, let’s gather our supplies. You need very few supplies for this project–which is nice. You’ll want:
- 1″ x 12″ strips of paper (double-sided patterned paper makes this even more fun; as does our 2-toned cardstock)
- Stapler or glue
- Bone Folder (optional)
Fold each strip in half. Then using a Bone Folder (if you have one handy) curl both ends inward (like you would when working with curling ribbon.) This will help train the fibers in the paper to bend to form the heart shape.
Staple or glue the 2 curled ends together to hold the heart in proper shape.
Repeat process of creating a second paper heart with another strip of paper. Link the next heart through the first one before stapling or gluing it together.
Continue to fold strips in half, curl ends and then link each new heart through the last one before stapling or gluing it together until you have enough hearts to your chain.
So easy, right?! And cute. Now that you know how to create a Valentine’s Countdown Chain, go grab some of your favorite papers and get started before it’s too late!
