Instructions

Gather together your elements for your heart design, I have used the Foxy and Friends collection by Hunkydory, specifically The Little Book of Foxy & Friends and the Luxury Paper Pad to match. I have used a wooden heart for this design but you could use any mdf shape you may have in your craft stash or check out Dreamees, Anne Marie Designs, Craft Consortium or Creativ on the website for products.

1

Take the pinflair glue and drizzle all over the mdf heart then using your finger smooth the glue to the edges, taking care not to go over the edge and down the sides. Place the heart on your chosen piece of paper for the background of your design. Allow this to dry before moving to the next step.

2

Trim or rip the paper around the heart and then use the sanding block to distress the edges.

3

Pierce the hole ready for threading the ribbon later and then take another sheet of the paper which is double sided and tear some strips to decorate the heart as shown. Glue these down with the Pinflair glue and trim off the excess paper from the edges and distress again with the sanding block.

4

Now we can move on to the characters, I have chosen the 2 bunnies from the Little Book and fussy cut them out entirely the first time and then a second time but just the head and body section as we are going to use the 3d foam tape to layer them up like a decoupage topper. I’ve also used the bottom part of the sheet and stuck that down for the bunnies to stand on and then stuck the layered bunnies on to the heart.

5

Next we can have fun using embellishments to decorate the heart, I’ve used wooden sentiments and flower buttons but you can use anything you think would match your design.

6

To finish the heart all we need to do is add the ribbon through the hole we made earlier and tie it so it can be hung up and displayed. This little project can be adapted for any theme using different styles of product and you can even use inks to distress the heart if you want a more vintage looking heart.
