A heart pattern is one of the easiest patterns to make.
Fold a piece of paper in half and draw half a heart next to the fold.
Cut out the heart while the paper is still folded.
Open the heart after it is cut out.
You can make all kinds of variations to a simple heart pattern.
Make it long and skinny.
Make it fat.
Change the shape a little.
Or a lot. Open the cut heart and re-cut one side.
Indent more or less.
Trace the finished heart onto cereal box cardboard to make a sturdy template.
If you want the cardboard heart to be the same size as the paper heart, cut just inside the traced line.
Or make a template from a milk jug.
Make a No Glue Heart Chain.
