While the paper heart is still folded, make a parallel cut about 1″ inside the heart. This will give you your window frame. Save the inside paper heart cutout to make a smaller version.

Place the squares of tissue paper inside the paper heart on the contact paper. Be careful not to go over the edge of the window frame.

When the Valentine heart is filled with tissue paper, place a second piece of contact paper over the whole thing. Be careful not to get air bubbles.

Cut away the excess contact paper. If you leave a little bit of contact paper around the edge of the heart it will stick together better.
