Canvas Corp Brand CCB Creative CrewI loved making the hearts, the banner, and sharing how to make them on Periscope.  To find out when I am doing another Periscope check out my Facebook page.

Don’t be put off by the number of steps!  This is easy…it is the written explanation that is tedious.

 

Steps:

  1. Cut 6 strips of heavy weight paper.  I used:  Pink and Ivory Dot Reverse and White and Kraft Fleur de Lis.
  2. If one-sided color the plain side.  I used:  Simply Sheer – Hot Pink and Glimmer Mist – Vintage Pink.
  3. Put under something that will weigh down the strips as they dry.  I put it under my craft mat for 1-3 minutes.
  4. Pinch off 3 inches from 2 strips and tear one strip in the middle.
  5. Fold one 12-inch strip in half and glue together.
  6. Place a small dot of glue at 2 inches from the bottom of the doubled strip (opposite the fold), over this place a 12 inch strip, line it up with the bottom.  Watch which direction you are laying this down.  You want the side that will be on the outside toward the doubled strip.
  7. Place a small dot of glue at 2 inches from the bottom of 12 inch strip on top of the doubled strip (opposite the fold), over this place a 9 inch strip, line it up with the bottom.  Watch which direction you are laying this down.  You want the side that will be on the outside toward the doubled strip.
  8. Place a small dot of glue at 2 inches from the bottom of 9 inch strip on top of the doubled strip (opposite the fold), over this place a 6 inch strip, line it up with the bottom.  Watch which direction you are laying this down.  You want the side that will be on the outside toward the doubled strip.
  9. Place a small dot of glue 1.5 inches from the bottom on the 6 inch strip.  Fold the 6 inch strip so that it lines up with the bottom and press together where the glue is.  Repeat this step for the 9 and 12 inch strips.
  10. For the other side repeat steps 6-9.
  11. Wrap and glue a 3 inch strip around the area that is about 1.5 inches from the bottom (where you did the second gluing to make the loops).
  12. Adhere decoration to 3 inch strip in front.
  13. Curl the ends.
  14. Drill a hole in doubled strip at top for banner.
  15. Glue outside each side loop to form the shape heart desired.
  16. Attach to cording to make the banner.  I used 24 inches; 6 inches on either end with hearts 6 inches apart.  3 x 10 inches of Hot Pink Hemp.  Each heart is tied to the banner with a square knot with the white cording inserted in the middle of the knot.
