Step 2: Cut out the template
Cut out around one of the rectangles.
Step 3: Fold back and forth
Fold back along the dashed line.
Continue folding back and forth like an accordion all the way to the end of the paper.
Step 4: Cut around the heart shape
Squash the "accordion" flat and cut away the gray area.
Step 5: Unfold to see your heart chain
Unfold the paper to reveal your paper heart chain! If you'd like to make an extra-long paper heart chain, then tape two or more chains together. Put the tape at the back where you can't see it.
