Cut patterned paper into 1" wide strips. You will need 2-8" strips, 3-6" strips and 2-4" strips to make one heart.

Lay out 7 paper strips in a row in this order: 8",6",4",6",4", 6", 8".

Apply 1" Glue Lines to the bottom of each strip and adhere together.

Starting with one side of the heart, choose the 4" strip to bend and adhere with 1" Glue Lines to the center of the middle 6" strip. Choose the next 6" strip to bend and adhere with 1" Glue Lines behind the 4" strip. Choose the outer 8" strip to bend and adhere with 1" Glue Lines behind the 6" strip. Repeat the above steps to complete the other side of the heart.

Using Ultra Thin Glue Dots, embellish the heart with buttons. Punch a hole in top of heart and string together with other hearts.
