Heart Templates






1. Select a heart template and print it out. Transfer the pattern twice onto corrugated cardboard and cut out.
2. Completely cover the backside of one heart with glue, lay the stick centered on this heart onto the glue and then place the backside of the second heart over the first, sandwiching the stick between the 2 hearts. Use paper clips to hold these together while drying. Print out and enlarge patterns as needed.
3. Create 2 simple bows with the ribbons. A child may need assistance from the parents holding the ribbon together while making the bow.
4. Cut a longer piece of the thin satin ribbon. Place now the thinner bow over the thicker one and use the piece of ribbon to now to tie the bows together. Let the ribbon ends hang.
5. Lay the glue hearts now flat onto the table and glue the ribbon bows onto the top center of the heart. Also use a paper clip to hold while drying. Let it dry around 5-10 minutes..
6. Slide a bead onto each of the ribbon ends and tie a knot at the bottom of each ribbon to secure the bead.
7. Cut two 2 x 30 cm strips of corrugated cardboard. Turn the first piece over so that the backside is up. Draw a line with the glue down the center length of the first piece. Start wrapping this now tightly and evenly around the other end of the shishkabob stick until the cardboard is used up. Now draw a line of glue around the second piece and repeat this step again. Hold the end of the second piece a couple of minutes until the glue is dry enough.
