    The key is to weave THROUGH the strips, not “over and under” as in traditional weaving. Once you get the hang of that, it works beautifully. There are additional directions here: http://www.amazingmoms.com/htm/valentine-paper-heart-craft.htm that you might find helpful.

    Great question Shannon. Allow me to clarify:

    Take a strip of paper and fold it in half. Then cut the shapes in step 1 out of the folded strip. The curved edge is the open side and the straight edge is where the fold is. Good luck!
