Tutorial #3 {Valentine Hanging Heart}

Tutorial #3 {Valentine Hanging Heart}

Supplies needed:
Cardstock {one piece 6x6, one piece 9x7}
Patterned paper {approx. 4x6}
Lace {25 inches}
Ribbon {8 inches}
Photos {small, no larger than 2 ½ by 2 ½}
Scallop deco scissors
Sewing machine
Embellishments {stickers, flowers, dymo etc}

Begin by cutting your heart out of cardstock, and then trace it onto the back of the larger piece of cardstock. Next cut with your scallop scissors around the heart shape on the larger piece of cardstock. Cut at ¾ to 1 inch out from the line you have drawn, this will give you a larger heart with scalloped edges (the base of your valentine).

Next take your smaller heart and your piece of patterned paper. Trace half of the heart on the back of the patterned paper and cut it out.

Glue the patterned paper onto the cardstock heart. At this point you can distress the heart and ink it, if you like.

Next turn your scalloped heart right side up and place your smaller heart on top of it. Lightly trace the smaller heart onto the larger scalloped heart. This will be the line you follow when you are placing the lace onto your heart.

Now it's the really fun part, time to embellish, so gather all your embellishments together.

All done a beautiful hanging valentine, perfect to hang in your house or to give to a loved one.
