  3. Fold strips in half and punch a hole in the center.
  4. Using a bamboo skewer or pen/pencil roll both sides to spiral.
  5. This will form your heart shape.
  6. Determine the length you want your string/twine then start threading the strips. To thread the twine through the strips easier tape the twine tip with masking tape. Then using the glue dot secure twine and heart together. You can also use hot glue gun.
