I am an old time crafter when you had to waste not food due to being poor! I thought about how to make this wonderful heart to be a eaten product! Do everything but DO NOT glue, paint and shellac. Use foil to cover any wood or cardboard. Mix sugar & water use as sticky paste for glue or use frosting. If you really want to put art, picture or card in middle put in a baggie or laminate or use edible printer products scan in to computer print out. It was yummy! If you go to give it to birds don't use the baggie or laminate section they will enjoy too!
