Directions to Make Paper Weaving Heart Craft
Print out the heart-weaving template on thick and sturdy paper. I always print mine on 200 GSM cardstock so it is easy for my daughter to weave.
On the heart template, there are Vertical dotted lines – Cut these lines using a Paper cutter by placing them over a cutting mat! Remember to cut only on the lines and leave a gap at the end
After cutting the lines, cut the heart out along the edges.
Next, cut some 1cm wide colourful strips from cardstock. We always use a Paper trimmer to cut the strips. If you do not have a paper cutter, please mark 1cm lines and cut with a scissor.
Let’s start weaving! Take a strip and insert into the Slits of Heart template bring it over and again under. This is how you weave until you reach the other end.
Take the second strip and repeat the process. the only change would be we have to alter the side that we insert. See the image or video for Clarity.
Continue weaving all the strips until the Heart template is tightly packed from bottom to top.
Now the final step is to cut the Extra stips projecting on the front and back sides. Later you can stick it to the base or leave it as it is. Your Paper Heart is ready for display.
