1.Open and log into Tinkercad

2. Begin tinkering

Step 2: CREATE THE BOX

4. add it to the middle of your box

Step 3: ADD SOME LOVE

1. look for the heart shape

2. drag to one face of the hexagon

4. select all, and group the shapes

Step 4: MORE LOVE

4. make sure the 2 surfaces touch

5.select all and group

Step 5: Making It Private

Step 8: Make It Private

Step 9: 3D Printing

1. save your Tinkercad as .STL files to be downloaded for printing
