Starting at one edge, tape the strip of card to the edge of the heart, slowly working your way around. Fill with your selection of goodies. Tape a small piece of ribbon to the top heart and then tape the this heart onto the base, using small pieces of tape all the way around.

If you’d prefer to fill at the end, you can leave a small section of the strip untaped, tape the top heart on, fill and then tape the strip closed.
