2 Small Rectangle Woodsies

Low Temp Glue Gun
Paint 5 craft sticks white. Paint both sides of 2 large hearts and 2 small rectangles pink. Paint 1 small heart red. Let dry.
Cut a piece of magnet 1-3/4" x 3-1/2". Line up the five craft sticks and glue magnet to the back.
Place 1 large pink heart on your work surface. Run a bead of hot glue down one straight side of the heart. Set a pink rectangle on the glue at a 90º angle. Do the same for the other side making sure rectangles meet together at the bottom point of the heart.
Glue a heart on top of the rectangles. You should now have a three dimensional heart with an opening at the top. Glue this to your white craft stick magnet and glue the small red heart to the front as shown in photo.
Glue flowers inside the heart tuck in a bit of moss.
