  8. Set paper tube in the center of an aluminum foil square and fold edges of foil up around the tube, pressing firmly into the glue.  *If you want to foil cover both ends, add Hershey Kisses before sealing.
  9. Apply glue around the the tube and affix the strip of construction paper to the paper tube.
  10. Write your message on one side of the red heart.
  11. Apply dabs of glue to the opposite side of the red heart and affix the accordion folded arms to the center.
  12. Apply glue to opposite end of accordion folded arms and affix to either side of the paper tube.
  13. Affix googly eyes to one side of the pink circle.
  14. Using the black marker, draw a pig nose on the pink circle.
  15. Apply glue to edge of pink triangles and affix to the back side of the pink circle to make the ears.
  16. Apply a patch of glue to the bottom of the back side of the circle and affix it to the paper tube.
