Illustrated Craft Tutorial - How to Make Woven Paper Hearts - Part 1

These hearts are like a mix of the Fröbel Stars (German Paper Stars) because of the technique of making them and the Danish Woven Hearts because of how they look. Combined you have small and cute ornaments that are so fun to make and once you get the hang of making them, you will not be able to stop.

This tutorial is shown using 4 different colored strips to help it be easier with following the steps. Normally you create these hearts with just one or two colors.

1. You need 4 strips of paper that are 1.5 cm wide and at least 44 cm long. Then fold each of the strips in half longways. If you like, cut the strip ends to a point and that will help the weaving be easier.

2. These strips are four different colors. Now it is time to start weaving. The first strip ends ends (blue) are facing down.

Then come from the left with the black strip and enclose the blue one.

Then come from the bottom and enclose the black strip with the orange one.

Then come from the right side and enclose the orange strip with the yellow one. At the same time, enclose the yellow strip in the blue one.
