DIY: Heart Chain Link

    |

Looking for some last minute Valentine's Day decorations for your party/girl's night/date? When hanging out out with my friends K^2 (they're twins!) and B, the other night, K showed me how to make this simple and cute heart chain link. All you need are a few pieces of colored paper, scissors, and a stapler.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Cut your colored paper into strips that are approximately 1.5 inches in width. If you're using 8.5"x11" paper, you're going to want to cut it horizontally, or, as many people learned to call it, "hotdog style".

2. Take one strip, and fold it in half so that it looks like a V. Bend the ends of the strips toward the inside of the V so that the strip resembles a heart.

3. Take another strip, fold it in half, and sandwich it between the top of the heart you just created.

4. Staple the two strips together (see picture below). Depending on whether you want to make a chain link or a wreath, repeat steps 2 and 3 until you reach a desired length.
