1. Cut out 2 same size fish from your choice of scrapbook paper.
2. Turn one fish over so that the wrong side is up. Draw a line of glue around all but 3 inches of the outside edge. Match the wrong side of the second fish now to this fish and press hearts together.
3. Wait for glue to dry before continuing. Once glue is dry, fill the fish with fiberfill to give it a puffy look. When finished, now glue the remaining open edge together and let it dry.
