  • Hearts: fold the red strip in half (as indicated by the black line) and fold in half again (horizontally). Bring the two ends of the strip together in the shape of a heart and make two holes with a paper punch for the wooden stick.
  • Arrow tips: Fold the figures in half, as indicated by the black line. They will take the shape of a triangle. Place the end of the wooden stick between the two halves of the triangle and stick it on.
  • Arrow feathers: just cut them out and glue them to the stick! 😉


We have also added some labels for you to place on your gifts
