Cut heart pieces.  If you don't want the hanging loop, trim it off and discard.

Identify the two sets of pieces: hearts 1-2-3 and cross pieces A-B-C.

Identify the top and bottom of pieces: the top of A is pointed and the bottom is rounded; outermost slots of B and C open at the top of the pieces.

Assembly video appears below.  Note that I only show how to add the first piece of each pair.  Be sure to add both before moving on to the next pair.



Begin assembly by slotting together heart 1 and cross piece A, at their centerlines, top and bottom.

Add heart 2, front and back:  slot the centerline slots, top and bottom, of heart 2 into the second set of slots on piece A.

Add piece B, both sides: centerline slots of B go into the second set of slots on heart 1; and second set of slots on B go on second set of slots on heart 2.

Add heart 3, front and back:  centerline slots of heart 3 go on outermost A slots; and outermost heart 3 slots go on outermost B slots.

Add piece C: center slots of C on outermost slots of heart 1; and outermost slots of  C onto outermost heart 2.
