an idea I had after looking at the cover of Living February 2012 issue. I love the flowers in a heart shape but I wanted something that would last a bit longer than the flowers. I hope you enjoy the photos and instructions that follow. You are welcome to share it if you like it.
All you need is a heart template about 12” and a piece of cardboard or a cake circle. Also scrapbook paper 12” x 12”, cupcake liners (red, pink or white) and ribbon.
Cut out the heart shape.
Trace it on the cardboard
and cut out.
Spread glue on the back of the cardboard heart shape. Make sure you have glue to the edges.
Smooth your favorite scrapbook paper on the back and trim to the heart shape
Pinch one cupcake liner at the center bottom.
Place a small bit of hot glue on the bottom of the petal. Keep a bowl of ice near if you accidentally get hot glue on your fingers. Trust me it is a good thing!
Place on the front of your cardboard heart standing upright.
Continue to add petals to form the shape of a flower.
Add petals in clumps and move to a new area. If you continue in the same area the glue does not cool as quickly. You can go back to fill in.
When you have the heart shape filled with petals turn it over and hot glues a ribbon to the back so you can hang it.
