  • If you are going to cut out these heart templates and use them to trace around, you'll get the best results by printing on a thicker paper such as card stock.
  • Try folding the paper in half at the center of the heart so your cuts are symmetrical. That is, of course, unless you are using the anatomical heart template or another template that is asymmetrical.
