1) Gather your supplies
-paper cutter (scissors if you don't have one)
(not shown: glue and thread to hang)
HERE and knew this would be a great craft Sierra could put together in no time flat. Here is how we made ours. Chose three colours of contrasting papers in greenish tones. I had three greens but two of them were very similar so I used yellow for the centre instead of the third green.
My papers were 9"X12" in size to begin with. I used a green paper with sparkles in it for the outer piece and cut (with my paper cutter) that paper into 1" strips along the longest side of the paper (1"X12" strips).
11) Repeat to make three of these heart shapes.
12) Cut the excess paper off below the staple.
14) Attach a string and hang. I originally planned to hang these in the window but they are quite big and being green they were a bit hard to see.
So we hung them near our photo wall above our couch.
We also tried to make a smaller size by cutting off two inches from each piece before assembling the pieces but it didn't make a huge size diference. If you want smaller ones I'd recommend taking 4" off each piece.
Sierra made hers pretty much by herself. She cut the strips, placed the pieces together in order, did the first staple to secure them. She then folded them over one by one but asked for help doing the final staple as the pieces kept slipping and she found it frustrating to have to redo it.
