Fun & Easy Valentine Project- Paper Folded Heart Garland

Hi Chicks!
Scrap Yard Chicks wanted to bring you a couple of cute, quick and easy Valentine projects this week.
This Folded Paper Heart Garland, is a great project, and it is fun, inexpensive and easy.

You need a 4x12 piece of double sided cardstock weight paper. Cut it into 1x12 strips.

Cut two strips into 4" and 8" lengths
Cut two strips into 6" lengths.

Arrange strips, lining them up along the bottoms and all the pattern facing the same way

8", 6", 4", 6 "

then add 4", 6", 8" with the pattern going the opposite way.
Glue or staple bottoms together.

Start on the left side, line up the tops of the 8", 6" and 4" strips, staple together

Repeat for the right side- there will be a 6" strip in the center that is loose.

Fold under the tops of the strips and curve them slightly into a heart shape. Use glue dots or liquid glue to attach them to the center strip (1x6" piece). Repeat for the other side.

Fold over about 1" on the top of the 1x6" center strip and punch a hole. Thread hearts onto ribbon and have a Happy Valentines Day!
