TONI'S HEART TUTORIAL

It is that time again!

For one of the Shabby Girls' to share a tutorial.
And seeing it is the month of Valentine's Day,
Toni is sharing with us her stunning heart wall hanger


Here is a list and photo of what you will need


paper
card stock
cardboard
book page
glue
chalks
paint
decorative edge scissors
leaf punch
keyhole
lace
stick pins
buttons
flowers
letters

This was so easy to do.
First I cut a heart shape from my paper then chalked the edges with colorbox chalks.
Then I use an edge distressor to give the edges that ruffed up look.
I glued it onto white card stock and cut around that with decorative edge scissors.
I cut a larger heart out of cardboard, (I always save my boxes that come in the mail) and to make the top layer come off easier I made the cardboard damp and the top layer peeled right off.
Next I mounted my heart onto the cardboard and added the lace and holes in the top to add the lace for a hanger.
I then repeated the heart process for the two smaller ones that hang from the bottom of the big one.
I punched some leaves with a leaf punch, chalked and glittered them and had heaps of fun adding flowers and embellies.
I have another tip for you, when I cut things out that are real tiny I use cuticle sissors that have that bent tip, they work so well when cutting out small leaves & flowers.

Thanks so much Toni!!

Boy, we have been really rocked with what we have seen so far!!
