Hello Everyone!

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 :-)

Firstly, lets begin by gathering the pieces. Gather the pieces for the heart that you want to build below:

Small Valentine Day Heart

Connectors


Red - 25

Rods

I would take ages to make this k'nex heart! It looks awesome! why don't you enter this in the Laser contest?

Haha, it took me 2 hours - I build fast ;-) But it took longer to make a high quality 'Ible and it was definately worth it :-) Thanks Muhaiminah again, you are really kind hearted :D

I wasn't sure if it would be eligible for the contest, but now that you have mentioned it, I have sent a request :-) Thanks Muhaiminah for the vote! I really do appreicate it more than words can say. :D

Hunter, this is very nice. I am sure anyone would love to receive this type of Valentine. I wish you the best in the contest! Thanks for sharing your hard work! If I had legos I would make one and post a picture! My 32 year old son wanted legos for xmas. I bought him the space needle and he loved it! I think legos will continue to be around for years to come.
