*Fold each piece of paper in half.

*To make the two hearts you will need, cut one of the pieces of paper in half along the fold.

*Fold each of these pieces in half and cut along the fold.

*Draw half a heart on each (around the fold).

*Cut along the line you drew. This will make 2 hearts.

*Fold one of the hearts in half.

*Draw a small half-heart on the folded heart and cut along the lines. This forms the picture frame.

*Cut the photo to fit inside the heart frame.

*Assemble the picture frame by placing the center-less heart on the photo and gluing it down.

*Glue the solid heart to the front of the card. Decorate the front of the card with markers or crayons, or with tiny cut-out hearts.

*Cut two strips of paper (about 1 inch by 8 inches). Any color will do.

*Position the strips perpendicular to each other. Staple them together where they overlap.

*Fold one strip over the other, like an accordion or spring.

*Continue folding, making a springy strip.

*Tape the springy strip to the inside of the card.

*Tape the heart photo in the frame to the springy strip.

*Write a message on your card.
