Directions to make the Paper Strip Heart Craft
To begin crafting your paper hearts, start by using a paper trimmer or scissors to cut 2cm wide strips of paper in assorted colours.
Arrange them sequentially, cutting 2cm off each subsequent strip to create a descending-size pattern.
Place them one above the other. Once arranged, secure one end of the strips in place using a Stapler.
Next, gather the opposite ends of the strips, allowing them to bend naturally into a rainbow shape, and staple the other end securely. This forms your upright paper rainbow.
Now, for the heart craft, repeat these steps to create another rainbow. You’ll need two rainbows to make one heart.
Take one of the rainbows and bring its two ends together, stapling them to form a drop shape.
Repeat this process with the second rainbow to create two paper strip drops.
Finally, bring the two drop-shaped strips together and staple them again to create a heart shape.
Embrace the versatility of these heart crafts by experimenting with different colours and sizes!
These versatile heart crafts are perfect for decoration or homemade gifts, especially for kids to share with their friends. Whether you stick to a single colour scheme or explore a rainbow of hues, each heart celebrates the beauty of handmade artistry.
