Is your Valentine a surgeon? med student? a goth? a cannibal? just a weirdo in general? This is the instructable for you!
If your love is real, your box of chocolates should look like a real heart!
Time: 3-4 hrs.
Cost: $0-$10, depending on what you already have around the house.
1. Printed heart image (print at home or at copy store)
2. Scrap cardboard (corrugated is too thick; use something like a cereal box.)
3. Paper glue (a gluestick will work for steps 1-5, but you will need something stronger for steps 6-9.)
4. Construction paper, cardstock or other thick paper
1. Sharp scissors or Xacto knife with cutting board.
Step 1: Get your heart image
1. Google image search "human heart", "human heart model" or "anatomical heart" and choose a heart you like. Or you can look through one of those old European medical texts and scan an image from there.
2. Using an image editor, adjust the color, size, etc. of your heart to make it the way you want it. If you want a large box, use a full sheet. For a more regular-sized box, go with about a half sheet size.
3. Print the heart on your computer or take the image to a copy center and have them do it for you if your printer is not up to the task.
