No, I'm not sending a huntsman after you to nab your heart for the queen!

You need to cut a large heart out of paper.  You can do this several ways.  You can have kids fold a large sheet of construction paper in half and cut out a heart shape.  (You can use my template and have them follow it)

You can print out my template and have kids draw around it and cut out the heart whole.

You can choose the color of paper you like for your heart, just remember  you will want your foot to pop on the paper so make sure to pick colors that complement each other.
Gifts with personal touches, like footprints, are always the best and most fun to look back on :)
