Things to do:
1. The first step is making a pattern for the base of the project. This heart shape is sturdy enough to hold up your treat bag, and it looks adorable! I’ve found that the easiest way to make this pattern is to cut a square that is 2 ¾ inches, fold it in half and cut a half heart shape out. For the wings, cut a 2″ by ¾” half circle.
