Instructions

  1. Trace the shape of hearts on paper. Red, pink or white works best, but so does the person’s favorite color. Make all different sizes of hearts to give the explosion of hearts an effect.
  2. Cut out the hearts with a slit at the point where the two bumps of the heart’s top meet. The slit should reach halfway down the heart.
  3. Roll the two arches of the heart so that they fold to the back of the heart. This should make the center of the heart pop out making it a 3D shape.
  4. Glue the sides of the arches together to hold that 3D shape.
  5. Let dry completely and repeat until you have the right number for your Heart Bomb.
  6. Using double sided tape, tape the hearts to the surface you want to bomb,
  7. Watch your loved one’s face light up when they see all your love!

  1. Cut out the shape of a heart in the plastic canvas. It’s ok if it’s boxy or square on the edges, the yarn will take care of that.
  2. Take your yarn and thread it through the tapestry needle.
  3. Start wrapping the yarn on the outer edge of the heart. Make it a round stitch or loop stitch to wrap the edges of the heart.
  4. Stitch the interior of the heart with regular stitches. See photo to get the look.
  5. Tie the yarn off on the back of the heart and trim the extra yarn.
  6. If you want to make a necklace, use the tapestry needle to work the leather cording through the back of the heart. Tie the cording and wear as a necklace.
  7. If you want a pin, glue a safety pin to the back of the heart and let dry.

Kaitlyn Age: 12  Bio: he was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Her mother, Jessica Cadice was truly a woman with a heart of gold. while her husband, Anderson, a secret agent working for the English Spies Association. They own a Modern mansion in england.  Kaitlyn in the story, is explained with her personality and relationship with the butler, cook, maid, and others. Chapter 1  Kate was a girl of 12 years old. Kaitlyn, her name to be prefered, Woke up in the middle of the night. sweeping her covers to the side, she stepped out of bed, opening her window to breathe the fresh night air. Contrary to what she expected, the air was misty and very musty. She covered her nose. "In england, why must we be inside clouds at 1 am?  Kaitlyn went downstairs of the blackwell mansion. Her silk slippers made a rough sound over the dark grey carpet on the balcony. Looking over to the kitchen. She smells A fresh Peach pie. She automatically knew who made it. Mr. Baxster, the butler, loved pies. He owned a shop 1 street corner away from the mansion. Kaitlyn went down stairs to find the cook, Miss Laquel, obviously making a variety of pies. Pies scattered everywhere, Kaitlyn scratched her head. Why would mss Laquel make this many cakes at 1 am?   Chapter 2 Kaitlyn decided to investigate the scene. She heard her father talking about "investigating a scene" one time. She Looked for Any clues. She found a Silk blue notebook with a lock on it. She suspected Miss Laque had the key. Nonetheless, It was probably important, so she Hid it in the kitchen cupboard behind the stinky cheese spices. Dad never used them. Mom said they were taking up space. Dad always said he'll get rid of them soon. "Soon=Never. What a waste." She said, holding her nose. She opened one pie. "Ugh! What a horrible smell!" She screamed. The cook rubbed her eyes. "Huh? Who.. Nevermind. Now the pies. " Where was Kaitlyn? Hiding in the window curtain. "Mr. Baxster will LOVE these Pie samples for his bakery." She said in a suggestively Happy voice. She ran upstairs to her room to get dressed, after putting the pies To rest in her Home-sewed bag. She put the two samples of the stinky pie in the mouse trap. And then, she put the rest in the garden. Kaitlyn peeked out of the curtain. She held it up to make her way into the living room. "Roses eat pie?" She looked at the plants. "Ahh. Fertilizer Pie. Bón Appetit, flowers."   Chapter 3 Looking at the flowers covered in fertilizer, she realised she was wasting time. The clock said  I:oII which mother taught her was 1:02 am. She decided to catch up on sleep. It was to early to be awake. She ran up the stair to her bedroom. She ockked the door. tHen she realised.. Her bedroom balcony had been open. There were no signs or anyone in in the home. "Oh, it must be the wind" She shrugged . Which was quite reasonable because this wind was stronger than a mountain lion. Particularly tonight.  She put her robe on and made her way to the castle-like balcony. "What a dark night. Starry, beautiful" She lay there, on the balcony. "What a-" *yawn* She fell asleep on the balcony.
