Mole took a piece of pink paper and folded it in half.

He drew a curvy line in pencil.

"That looks like my tail," giggled Mouse.

"Don't be silly!" chuckled Mole.

He cut along the line with scissors.

Snip, snip, snip!

"Presto!" Mole unfolded the paper.

"Why, it's a heart!" Mouse exclaimed.

"You are too clever, Mole!"
