Step-by-step instructions to make a 3D heart frame:

  1. Grab the cardstock, quick dry glue, and scissors. You could use various kinds of cardstock: glitter, gloss gold…
  2. Download and print out the free templates for the haft heart and the frame.
  3. Cut, and fold with the help of a ruler (in my new tutorial to make 3D high heels)
  4. Glue the tabs which have the same number ID together, to form the half-heart shape. White glue works well on normal cardstock, but UHU glue is used for glitter/gloss cardstock.
  5. For the template for the frame, I reused the frame template in the mini rose frame here. But I use the white glue this time, instead of 2-sided adhesive tape as I found that my 2-sided adhesive tape is not stable later time.
  6. Glue the frame to the base cardstock and then glue the half heart to the center of the base cardstock.

What you will need to make a paper 3D heart frame:

  1. Cardstock or glitter cardstock or glossy cardstock
  2. Scissors
  3. Scoring tool (dried-out ball pen or the dull side of a craft knife)
  4. Ruler
  5. Quick-drying white glue or UHU glue
  6. A needle or a syringe will help you glue neatly.
  7.’s template for the half-heart 3D template. Please remember that I printed to size A5 paper size to make these 3D hearts.
