Step 1: Fold a piece of felt in half.
Step 2: Use a template or free-hand drawing a heart about 4 inches wide and cut it out so that you have two identical pieces.
Step 3: Repeat with all desired colors, using the same template for all.
Step 4: Lay out the hearts in the desired color pattern and separate the tops/bottoms.
Step 5: Draw a line of glue through the middle of the row and press the string on top of it.
Step 6: Add additional glue around the edges of the heart and sandwich the other piece on top.
Step 7: Use the paint to write unique conversation heart sayings on each heart and set aside to dry overnight.
Tip: In order to ensure somewhat even lettering, draw the middle letters first. This ensures the middle of the words will line up with the middle of the hearts.
