JOANN Partnership

JOANN stores are empowering the next generation of makers by connecting more young people to experiences where they can learn by doing, creating & making. By providing local 4‑H Clubs with resources and tools to run impactful programs, JOANN will bring the 4‑H experience to more kids in need.

What to Do

  • Cut paper into 1-inch-wide strips.
  • Make five hearts as follows:
    • Fold one strip in half to create a V shape.
    • Place two glue dots about one inch up from the fold and press edges together.
    • To form the heart point, bend the ends away from the center and secure them with glue dots.
  • To make the hanger, make two more hearts, placing one end of a 12-inch ribbon inside the V shape before securing with glue dots.
  • Attach the seven hearts together as shown with glue dots.
