To start the project you need a stapler and paper. The design of paper is arbitrary. You can use plain white paper, newspaper, colored paper, a collage of blocks or paper painted with a technique of painting with marbles. In this case, we used a harder yellow A4 paper (100 g).

For cutting the paper you can use scissors or a scalpel. Cut strips of the paper width of about 2 cm. The length is arbitrary. The longer the strips that will represent links in a chain, the bigger the hearts will be. We cut A4 paper in width. The dimensions of the strips are 2×21 cm.
