The Brokenhearted Puzzle is a fun way to send your loved one a secret message.

Tell your valentine to put together the Brokenhearted Puzzle to get a sweet message.

What You'll Need:

Red construction paper

Scissors

Thin cardboard

Glue

Markers

Envelope

Draw and cut out a large construction paper heart. Glue it onto a piece of thin cardboard, and cut around the heart when the glue is dry. Write a message in large letters on the heart. Some ideas for messages are: 'I Went to Pieces,' 'Together Forever,' or 'How Do You Mend a Broken Heart?'

You may want to decorate your message and the rest of the heart with pretty designs and colors, maybe with tiny hearts, bluebirds, flowers, and small cupids. When you are finished, cut the heart into several pieces, and put the pieces into a pretty, decorated envelope. Give your broken-heart message puzzle to someone you love for a really special Valentine's Day card.
