  1. First, we drew lines on heart templates with pencils and rulers.
  2. Then, we painted in our shapes.
  3. When the paint was dry we cut out our hearts and glued them onto black construction paper.
  4. We then glued down black strips of paper to cover our pencil lines.
  5. Finally, we cut our hearts again, leaving a black border.
