Paper Heart

Happy Line Hearts
(All 6 above are teacher examples, 
mrs. Seaton had to much fun! 😍)

Let's begin...

You will need small construction paper, scissors, glue, crayons, pencil. 

You will learn how to make a symmetrical shape by folding paper, pattern, line variety, positive & negative shape. 
FOLD paper in half, horizontal or vertical. TURN fold to left, DRAW a hook on the fold, CUT along hook. OPEN positive shape to reveal heart...
Above; using the positive and negative together on large black background paper. 
Above is an example of a positive blue shaped heart cut out & the negative blue piece left from it. They can both be used... πŸ˜ƒ
Here above, I am using the positive blue heart on orange. After gluing the heart to a background paper, use crayons to add in lines, patterns, designs & doodles around and in heart. 
Almost done... 

Below, I placed the blue negative heart on a yellow paper and traced it. I removed the negative to draw designs with crayon again...
When designs on negative heart were done, I glued the blue negative onto the yellow background... 
I then used the crayons to decorate the pliΓ© negative heart. 

Alternative cuts using positive with negative...
