So there will be several layers. Fold the entire layered square in half and draw half a heart on it. With the center of the heart on the folded part. Also, draw some half-circle ornaments on the edge of the heart. Cut the paper by following the shape of the drawing.

Then draw lines crosswise over the cutout heart. Every layer of it. Put glue by tracing every line that was drawn on every layer. Press after every application. Fold.
