Once you have origami hearts ready, flip one of them on the back and apply double-side sticky tape (like shown on the picture). Next, prepare twine you will use to hang heart ornaments: add a little hanging loop on one side and beads on other side of the twine, leaving space in between (app. the height of origami heart).

Now you’re ready to place twine in the middle of one heart and then top it with another origami heart. Like making a sandwich! For an end, decorate middle of the star-burst on origami hearts with self-sticking gems. This will help holding it in place.

Enjoy crafting and happy Valentine’s day!
