With All My Heart: Nested Hearts

Welcome to the fifth and final “With All My Heart” project.

 

These are paper hearts made simply from paper strips. I photographed them on a counter, because I couldn’t capture how pretty they really are with a straight on photo. So. let’s get started on how to make these beauties!

To Make these Hearts, here’s what you need to do:

 

Heart Strips

 

1. Cut two of the following sizes for each heart: 1″ x 4″, 1″ x 6″ and 1″ x 8″

 

2. Now, listen carefully… you need to stack the strips as follows: one 1″ x 4″, 1″ x 6″, 1″ x 8″, 1″ x 8″, 1″ x 6″  and 1″ x 4″

MAKE SURE THE SIDE YOU WANT SHOWING ON THE OUTSIDE IS FACING IN!

 

3. After you have the strips stacked the way you want,

staple them together along the bottom edge.

4. Once stapled, pull three strips and curve them together toward the bottom.

Line them up and staple. Do the same to the other side.

You can wait to staple the both sides together.

Once all the strips are in place you should have three nested hearts!

It’s that simple.

Pulling Strips Together

To make a garland make as many nested hearts you want, dab glue in the top crevice and stack another heart in the crevice. this project used three hearts.

Affix a piece of ribbon as a hanger on the top heart.

 

Here’s a photo of one nested heart:
