Aaw! First time IKEA visitor, makes me all teary eyed. 🙂

For the heart, I would just use a heart shaped cookie cuter to draw the outlines for the hearts – then cutting them out. I would then fold them slightly on the middle and secure them to each other and the frame using… um not sure what they’re called, but it’s double sided tape in a dispenser that looks like this.

@Brickette:  you could also sew a line down the half mark to help the heart stay. I would worry glue might not hold unless you used super  glue or a glue gun

such a cute idea!

May I also suggest cutting out the hearts, stack them, fold in the center with a sharp crease.  Set one heart aside and staple the remaining hearts in the center (a few staples down the middle).  Then use double sided tape, or a small drop of glue to secure the one heart cut out your set aside to the top of the stack to hide the staples.  Glue or use dbl sided tape to secure to the backing of the frame.
