very well. His tests didn't show any underlying health issues that would have caused the A-Fib. He still has a stress test scheduled for next month. He plans on going, despite the fact I'm perfectly capable of providing him with plenty of stress ;0) In fact, the day of his release they said he could go back to his normal routine, including exercise! We feel happy. blessed, and aware of how much he means to all of us!
Now, lets make a mess. The finished heart is about 20"x 18"
- 5 (2 1/2") styrofoam balls cut in half (10 total).
- 1" sheet of styrofoam cut in to 2" squares, some of those are cut into rectangles. I ended up with 14 pieces out of the sheet. You don't have to be precise with how many you make, I'll explain further down.
- 1/8" foamcore board
- a scrap of cardboard
- paper cupcake or candy cups
- pink crepe paper roll
- red tissue paper
- craft paint in dark, milk and white chocolate colors (I used a pink as well). You need to purchase a box of assorted real chocolates for comparing the colors..yes, it's essential ;0) your welcome.
- piece of ribbon for hanging
- paint brushes, glue gun, tooth picks and a scrap of foam
- I glued two layers of crepe on the edge, scrunching and ruffling as I went around.
- I used a piece of castoff cardboard, cut, scored and notched so that the edge would be the same height as the "chocolates". I scrunched and glued tissue around the cardboard band
- I used candy cups and glued four to each chocolate piece...only because I didn't have any cupcake cups. Then hot glued each piece into the box.
- A ribbon to hang by
