DIRECTIONS:  

Fold the red or pink cardstock in half so it is a 5.5” x 4.25” piece. Align the top of the cookie pattern to the folded edge as indicated. Trace and cut out. Set aside.

From the red or pink scrap, cut out a piece ˝” x 3” for the tabbed pop-out. Fold the strip in half lengthwise. Fold and crease ˝” from each end.

Open the cookie heart piece. Glue one ˝” tab by the center top of the bottom heart. Fold the card up at a 45° angle. Glue the other tabbed end to the top heart center. The tabbed piece should form a “step” like pop-out. Set aside.

Trace and cut out the bear pieces from the tan and cream cardstock according to the patterns. Using a glue stick or double stick tape, glue the cream tummy to the bear body. Glue the feet to either side of the bottom of the body. Glue one paw to the body. Cut out the heart from the scrap of pink or red cardstock. Write a message on the heart if you want. Glue the heart to the paw on the body. Glue the other paw slightly over the heart, like the paws are holding it. Use the marker to draw in the bear’s face.

With the card opened at a 45° angle, glue the bear to the tabbed pop-out on the inside of the heart cookie. Make sure you line the bear up and see that the bear will not peek out when the card is closed.

From the white cardstock, trace and cut out the “icing” piece according to the pattern. Center and glue to the front of the card.

Use a marker to write a message on the top of the icing. Take the scrap red or pink cardstock. Snip small bits for “sprinkles”. Scatter and glue to the top of the icing.

Glue the craft stick to the bottom of the heart from the back.
