Trace cookie cutter shape on the red fun foam twice. Cut out both pieces. Hot glue white lace on the edges of one of the heart pieces.
Glue one end of the ribbon to the left and right center sides of this same piece. Next, glue the other heart piece onto the piece with the ribbon and lace, covering the edges where the lace is glued and leaving the top portion open.
