For a while now, I have not posted an Instructable - my last one dates back in summer! I've been wanting to build something for a while but the question is: what? I then stumbled upon the Valentines Day Contest and then thought a bit, and began building a K'nex Valentine Heart!
In this Instructable, you will be guided on building a small or big K'nex Valentine Heart for your loved one! Showing both creativity and love for them.
I know that in the past, other K'nex hearts have been posted, but unlike mine, theirs isn't filled in and I mean.. what good is a heart if is isn't filled in with love and happiness - the 2 most important ingredients for a heart. Also, this is the only K'nex heart completely made out of one single type of connector: red connectors!
So get your K'nex and lets make some love. < hearts that is ;-)
If you want to build the big heart shown, the piece count is on step 1 and the instructions follow on: step 2, step 3 etc...And if you want to make the small Valentine heart, then the piece count again is on step 1 and the instructions begin at step 7.
Also if you haven't already guessed, this is for the Valentines Day Contest. It would make my day if just one person votes :-)
Step 1: Piece Count
Firstly, lets begin by gathering the pieces. Gather the pieces for the heart that you want to build below:
Big Valentine Day Heart
Blue - 4
White - 94 + 10 extra but those 10 look better if black
green - 2 + 58 black green sized rods again they look better (see photos)
Red - 175
'Y' Clips - 20
Small Valentine Day Heart
Red - 25
Blue - 3
White - 11
Green - 1 + 2 black rods (green sized) for better looks
'Y' clips - 6
Right got those, good then lets get building! :-)
