Say It With Love – Paper Heart GarlandRecently, I’ve seen some amazing paper heart garlands. Some made with book pagesand others with magazine pages. Some are pretty hearts sewn together and there are also lovely heart garlands using eyelets and an eyelet tool. Love them all!
Well, currently, I don’t have any cool book or magazine pages to use…or a sewing machine or eyelets/eyelet tool. Oh …maybe someday… I’ll have all the right tools??
But for now, I’m working with what I’ve got! Here’s everything I used because I already had it my house: White printing paper, red construction paper cardstock paper (updated to note – I used cardstock paper not construction paper), a straight edge cutter, glue, red ribbon and a stapler. This whole project cost me nothing…it was FREE!
I was hoping to use paper with words but like I mentioned above I didn’t have anything like that to use. So, I created my own. I simply typed the word “Love” in different fonts, alternated black and red as the color, and then I printed on white paper. I “loved” the way this quick and easy idea turned out, but…it needed some color to make it pop! That’s how the red cardstock paper came into the picture.
Say It With Love
Cut paper into strips. My measurements:
The white paper – 11 inches tall and 3/4 inch wide.
The red paper – 10 inches tall and 1 inch wide.
The red heart (which is the inner part) is going to be smaller than the white heart.
Fold strips in half.
Center the white strip onto the red strip and line up ends. (Note: I glued the white to the red on the ends. This is optional here. I did some with glue and others without. Using glue does make it easier to handle.)
Paper Heart Garland
Take the ends and hold together to form a heart. Staple. That’s the first heart in your garland. Now staple the rest of strips to make interlocking hearts. I created garlands in sets of 3 interlocking hearts to hang on each light of our kitchen chandelier. I hung them with red ribbon.Say It With Love – Paper Heart Garland
