Heart-Flower Tutorial

In today’s scrapbooking tutorial, I wanted to share a layout I recently created for a class I was taking from Big Picture Classes.Learn how to create bold flower embellishments with a heart punch in this scrapbooking tutorial.

I created the fun flower embellishments from a heart punch. It was super easy and makes a big impact so I thought I would give a step-by-step tutorial on how I created them. All you need is a heart punch or some cardstock heart shapes cut with your favorite die cut machine.Learn how to create bold flower embellishments with a heart punch in this scrapbooking tutorial.1. Punch or cut six hearts per flower. I placed a clear dimensional adhesive dot on my Ranger non-stick craft sheet temporarily. If you have one of these craft sheets, or something similar, its the best thing to use. The adhesive will stick to the mat a bit, but you will be able to get it off when your flower is complete.

2. Fold each heart in half. Place the bottom tip of the first heart into the dimensional adhesive, fold side up. Place each subsequent heart next to the last until you’ve adhered all six.

3. Press up the folds as you press the point into the adhesive if you want some additional dimension.Learn how to create bold flower embellishments with a heart punch in this scrapbooking tutorial.4. To finish, add something to the center of the flower to cover up all the points. You could use a brad, some bling or another smaller flower. The possibilities are endless!

These are so easy to make. I hope you try this flower technique on your next project!
