  4. Tape off small stripes on the medium tube and paint White.
  5. Tape a 4" section of the small tube and paint the outside with Flag Red. Stencil the large heart with Award Blue and the letters with White.
  6. Cut three 6" circles from the cardstock and paint one with Flag Red and two with Award Blue. Paint the front and the back.
