Stacked Book Page Hearts!

 Dreamy, romantic book-page hearts ...

You will need:
  • Book
  • Jigsaw OR scissors
  • Hemp
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hemp Cord
  • Ribbon, Fishing Line or Tulle

Cut up your book! I used a jig saw. SUPER FUN.

Or you can cut the pages by hand. If you're cutting pages by hand, cut the paper into 1 inch strips.

Count out 10 strips, then another ten strips.

 Curve the 2-10 stack strips toward each other (see picture, below).

Staple the bottom end.

Staple the inner pieces together (see picture, below).

Trim off the book binding, if necessary.

Cut off a small length of hemp cord. Place hot glue around back and front of staple. Wrap the cord around the staples/glue. Press hemp into glue and hold for a few seconds to secure. Repeat cording process with second staple.

 Make two holes. Use a bigger hole punch if you're using tulle to hang the heart.

Pull the ends of the tulle/string/ribbon UP from inside of the  heart.

Knot or tie a bow, as desired.

 Hang over doorknobs, chair backs, light fixtures or use as a gift topper!
