Step 13: Use a needle and red thread to attach the heart shapes to each other. First pull the thread through the small heart’s hole and then from the backside also through the big heart’s hole. Then carefully tie two or three knots and remove the excess red thread when you’re done.
Please note this job might be a bit tricky, so it could be handy to put a craft tool on the hearts like an eraser, to keep them in position.
Step 16: Set up your card like a tent and estimate what thread height you need to make the twirly heart mobile look good.
Once you’re happy with the result, you could use a craft tool (like an eraser) to keep the hearts in place, then tie two or three knots near the folding edge. Cut off the excess white thread and your card is finished!
