I made this from a heart shaped card cut out base.  Then I took various sized jigsaw pieces from puzzles with bits missing and painted them in the pinks and reds.  Some I glazed with glitter and pva, some with metallic paints.

I used a glue gun to assemble the final layout and wrote key "loving" words across a few of the pieces.  I then attached the two pendant style pieces at the bottom of the heart with the words "My missing piece", "You complete me", Plus a ribbon at the top of the heart so that it can be wall hung rather than used as a coffee coaster later on.
