This was designed by Makers4ALL. I'm simply posting a Cura project file for the Ultimaker S5 and a version that is modified to be a dual color version (so the heart can be red. Find the original STL here on Thingiverse. It was based on Version 4. There might be a newer one published there.
Important: I lowered the height so it's 1.6 mm high instead of the standard 2.0 mm. The flexibility of a thinner version makes it more suitable for printing in PLA. I'm using tough PLA, which is not brittle at all, so you can now bend this at a tight radius and it will bend back to its original shape (and won't break either). With more brittle types of PLA it probably is a good idea to make it slightly thinner.

You can wear it like this:
Materials and methods
PLA worked for me. Polypropylene (PP) also seems like a good candidate for this, since it can be sterilised if needed and it flexes easily and won't wear out from deformation (since it's used for living hinges and such).
The 11x clip 3MF file:
It takes just under two hours to print 11 of these clips with a 0.8 mm print core, so 11 minutes each!
The 4x clip dual color 3MF file:
It takes 1 hours and 5 minutes to print this with 0.8 mm (black base) and 0.4 mm print cores (red heart).
