Cut paper into one-inch strips lengthwise (cut size 1” x 11”).
Fold paper strip in half and crease (folded size 1” x 5”).
Bend the loose ends of your folded strip towards the middle and pull down (forming a heart shape) and staple into place.
Using a single-hole punch, cut through the middle and each side of the heart.
Thread finished hearts onto the string to create your garland.
