Once again, Welcome!
This third, “With All My Heart” project I’m calling Heart of Hearts and as you read on you’ll see why. This was such a fun project to make from strips of Designer Series Paper. The technique is such a simple one. I’m always amazed at what you can make with paper and glue.
How to make this Heart of Hearts:
❤ 1. Cut 30 1″ x 4″ strips of designer series paper of your choice.
❤ 2. Fold each strip in half, so you have two side pieces of 2″
❤ 3. Bring the sides down to the bottom and staple them together to form a heart.
❤ 4. Make 30 hearts. 14 for each side and one for the top and bottom. You may have to make more or less depending on how closely you stack them.
❤ 5. When you have all your hearts, place a dab of glue in the top crevice of one heart. Take another heart and place it in the top crevice, hold slightly, so the glue adheres the newly added heart. Continue in this manner until you have two equal sides.
❤ 6. As you glue your hearts together you can curve the bottoms as you go up and around. It helps to draw a heart or download one, to use as a guide for placement and heart shape. Here’s a detail of the bottom of the heart where that one middle bottom heart goes. See next photo for top middle heart that will hold the two sides together.
❤ 7. Once the heart is completed, glue it to an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of
Whisper White Card Stock. With a pencil, lightly scallop around the heart.
With scissors cut around each outer scallop, making sure you stay on the penciled lines.
If any pencil shows simply erase the lines.
❤ 8. In each scallop punch a hole with a 1/4″ Circle Punch.
❤ 9. Find your prettiest wide ribbon, string it through two side holes at the top of the heart and tie a pretty bow for a hanger.
And, now you know why I called this project, “Heart of Hearts!“
