How to make a Heart Pop Out card

  1. Punch 15 hearts for each card.

  2. Fold 5 pairs, pattern side together.

  3. Glue white sides together to make one heart. Repeat.

PREP: Punch out about 15 hearts per student. Also cut some of the pattern paper into 5″ x 8″ panels, one per student.
1. Glue a pattern sheet of 5″ x 8″ paper to the front of a folded card.
2. Choose five hearts, and fold them in half with the pattern on the inside. I called them “white ice cream cones”.
3. All five are folded hearts are lined up together, making SURE that the fold is on the same side. A glue stick is used to glue them together.
4. Open the fan heart and glue to the front of the card. The process is repeated to make heart two and three.
