Heart-Flower Tutorial

 

I created this layout for my Colour! Or is it Color? class at Big Picture Classes. I wanted to show how I made this fun flower embellishment. All you need is a heart punch or some heart shapes cut with your favorite die cut machine.

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, 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 end of the first heart, fold side up, into the dimensional adhesive. 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.

4. At this point, add something to the center of the flower to cover up all the points. You could use a brad, some bling or another flower. The possibilities are endless!

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