I’ve been having fun making some of the paper chain hearts for Valentines Day and made a wee video to show you how to do some yourself.
I used Phoenix Trading’s butterfly and hearts paperchains. They are really sturdy and I love the fact they have patterns on both sides. However you could you wrapping paper and this double sided wrapping paper would look very cool. Just cut or guillotine in to strips and away you go.
These also make great Christmas decorations too, and you can string several together to make a pretty garland.

Remember making paper chains when you were little? Endless cutting up of newspaper, or old wrapping paper to make the strips, then glue or staples as you linked them together?
Want to do it again?!
I love making paper chains with my children but I confess I take the easy way out now and use pre-gummed paper chains.
However, recently I’ve been busy trying other ideas with the paper strips, like these heart decorations. Really simple to do and my 9 year old discovered if you turn them upside-down they look like Christmas trees.
I did make a video of how to make these hearts for Valentines Day.
