Heart Wall Hanging Tutorial

 

I'm making GREAT progress on my Studio!  It feels good to get stuff out that I haven't used in years!  I'll be taking a lot of the non-Stampin' Up! stuff to a scrapbooking retreat in a couple weeks.  Hopefully I can sell most of it there.  I can tell you it isn't coming back into my house!  lol!

I promised you a mini tutorial on how to make the Heart Wall Hanging that I made for the Tour de Freaks last week.  They really are easy and you could do many different things…a garland, form it into a heart, add additional hearts and make the wall hanging longer…or shorter!  They are fun!  For mine, I alternated two different patterns of the Sending Love Designer Paper.

 

 

 

 

Step 1

Fold 1-1/2" x 12" piece of Designer Paper in half.  Add a piece of Sticky Strip to one of the open ends.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2

(So I don't confuse you, in Step 2 I used a different pattern paper,)  Peel off Sticky Strip and adhere the two open ends together, back to back to form a heart shape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3

Add more Sticky Strip to each side of the inside point of the Heart as shown.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4

Remove Sticky Strip from both sides, then push the inside point of the heart down into the fold of the bottom heart point until it touches the bottom.  Press to secure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5

Now add more Sticky Strip to both the outsides of the bottom point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 6

Remove Sticky Strip and push bottom point of first heart into top indentation of second heart.  Continue adding hearts until desired length is achieved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That's it!  Pretty easy, huh?  To finish my original one, I used the Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the top and added silver eyelets, then added the Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon.  For the bottom, I added a silver eyelet, then added the heart decoration I made. 

 

 

To make the decoration, use the Scallop Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die and cut 6 hearts from Real Red.  Score in half lengthwise and adhere back to back.  Before adhering the last two together, place cord thru the center.  Add beads if desired.

I hope you make one for your Valentine home decor this year!  The Sending Love Designer Paper was perfect!
