How to make it:
-Draw and cut out heart shapes on scrapbook paper ( what ever size you want them to be).
-Then cut the wings and tail feather hearts out of complimentary shades of the same color (or from different colors).
-Cut out a small beak out of red or pink paper, make sure the beak is also a heart shape.
-For the feet get three jeweler wire and twist them all together.
Step 2a
-Then bend the twisted wires into a V-shape. This will give the birds feet, separate the three wire to make it look like little toes.
Step 2b
-Glue the head and the feet to the big wings heart shape they you cut out.

-Then Glue the body heart on top of the wings heart, this will cover the top of the feet wire so that you wont see it from behind. Then glue the beak and the eyes to the top of the head.
