After you have made the folds to make your plane, cut out the heart shape and fold where indicated on the pattern.  Decorate your heart with googly eyes, pipe cleaner arms and staple it into the top of the center fold of the airplane by stapling the airplane at the bottom. 

Fine tuning the plane:  After decorating the plane with markers, stickers, or crayons, fold up the side flaps of the airplane and let her fly.  If your plane dives straight down, bend the back of the plane edges up.
