Start by cutting the 3 different papers into 1 1/2 inch strips. You don't have to be exact when cutting the strips, but it's better for beginners to err on the side of having the strips too wide rather than too narrow.

Also carefully cut out the pattern. If you have carbon paper available, you can use that instead of having to cut out the heart shape. Or you may want to first laminate the pattern, then carefully cut it out so you will have a pattern that can be used over and over.

You will be working on the back of your piece of cardstock, so write a 'B' on the back so you can make sure you are always working on correct side. Trace the heart pattern in the center of your piece of cardstock.

Now, cut out the heart opening and discard the center(you may want to save a piece of the center for the iris).
