Or Follow These Step by Step Instructions
To make a nice heart shape, fold the paper and cut a half-heart shape (don’t know how? draw a number 2 ;).
This way you will get a nice symmetric heart.
Cut the heart shape into strips of paper.
Make sure the top part of the heart (the bumps) stay together on one strip of paper (this is really important).
Place them in order and start sticking them on the paper straw (washi tape works best here as it’s easy to work with). You can also use regular glue, glue dots, or tape…
Leave a bit of blank space between each paper strip.
That’s pretty much it! Your Heart On a Paper Straw is all done.
