Glue only the folded areas of the smaller hearts in the middle of the large heart.

Then once again use the templates to cut out the basket and cords for the hot air balloon.
Glue two cords (paper strip) on two sides of the basket, then glue the third cord in the middle of the basket.
Use the paper plate’s bottom to trace the circumference of the paper plate’s bottom.
Then use the measurement to cut out one green half-circular craft paper and one blue half-circular craft paper.
Then glue the green piece of half-circular paper on the bottom side as the grass and then glue the blue piece on the top as the sky.
To finish off the hot air balloon craft, glue the 3D heart on the top of the three cords on the basket and arrange the hot air balloon and pompoms inside the paper plate.
