Have you started pinning on Pintrest? This is my newest "guilty pleasure". I stop there to kill a couple of minutes and the next thing I know an ENTIRE hour or more has gone by! Great! Now, I'm going to have to wean myself off another addiction. On the up-side, I have been inspired to create some awesome projects. Like this one!
This adorable Heart Wreath was made using our newest Twitterpated Designer Series Paper. Would you like to make one too? Let's go!
Here's what you need:
8 pieces of double-sided card stock cut 2" x 12", I used Twitterpated DSP, #125406, $10.95
Mini Glue Dots, #103683 $4.95
Ribbon, 60" of 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Old Olive #119256, $5.95
Score each strip of card stock at 6" using our totally-awesome-I-must-have-it-or-I'm-going-to-die Simply Scored.
Did you know that the Simply Scored board comes with a Scoring Tool and a special little notch to keep it? You don't have to look all over the house for something to score with. Unless of course you forget to put the score tool back in it's place. Then go ahead, make a cocktail and start looking everywhere for something to score with, Bobbie pins, butter knife, quarters, dimes, paper clips. Might as well make two drinks before you start looking. You'll probably need it.
Fold your scored strips in half at the score marks. Put 3 mini glue dots at one edge of the card stock. Not the folded edge, the other edge.
See where the "X's" are? Put your mini glue dots right there. X marks the spot.
Next, turn the two loose edges in and adhere to each other with the glue dots.
This makes your heart.
Form a round wreath with your paper hearts.
Use a mini glue dot to adhere the hearts to each other. I like to use my Paper Piercing Tool to pick up a glue dot and adhere it when it's too hard to stick it directly to the paper. After you've glued all the hearts in a circle the next thing you'll want to do is get your 60" of ribbon and fold it in half.
Make a knot at each end of the ribbon and run the end between two hearts. I spaced mine with 3 hearts between ribbon ends. You might have to adjust yours. Use a few more mini glue dots to hold the ribbon in place and secure the paper around the knot. You don't want the knot to slip out of a gap.
You're done! Pick up your wreath and see how it hangs. If it looks a little lopsided, then add a few more glue dots in strategic places to lift the paper and shape the wreath.
Now it's your turn. Post your pictures of your creation and share it with my friends.
Thanks for crafting with me today!
