  • Colored Craft Foam (2 different colors)
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue

Step 2Cut a slit in one heart from the bottom to the middle of the heart.  Now cut a slit in the other heart starting from the top to half way down the middle.  
Step 3Cut small triangles out of the hearts where the slits are.  Now slide the two hearts together through the slits and separate out in order for the heart to stand up on it’s own.
