  • Card stock

  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Gift bag


  1. To make one, first draw pairs of eyes, hands, and feet (each about 2 inches across), as well as a 9-inch heart, onto card stock and cut them out. (Print the templates here.)
  2. Next, accordion-fold four 1 1/2- by 15-inch strips of card stock and glue a foot or hand to one end of each strip.
  3. Cut a mouth in the center of the heart, then trace the opening onto the front of a colorful 8- by 10-inch gift bag and cut it out.
  4. Add card stock or marker pupils to the eyes, then glue them to the heart. Glue the top of each arm to the back of the heart, then glue the heart onto the bag, lining up the 2 openings.
  5. Finally, glue the legs to the bottom of the bag.
