Today I am going to show you how to make your own flower using a heart shaped punch.
My punch makes a heart that is quite long and narrow, but if you have a punch that makes more "round" hearts that works aswell. Maybe you just need to make them overlap eachother a bit or not use as many.
This is what you need:
Scraps of two different papers (cardstock or designpaper does not matter)
Heart shaped punch
One bigger brad
Punch out 8 hearts of one color and 4 of the other color
Chalk the edges
You need a round piece of paper as a base to glue the hearts on. If you have a round punch thats perfect, but if you dont, do what I did and make a circle with the help of something round and cut it out :)
Put glue on the circle and begin to attach 4 of the 8 hearts opposite to eachother
Then attach the 4 of the other color on top, like in the picture
The 4 remaining hearts I cut a bit smaller
Then attach them in the middle (Oops sorry about my finger there lol! Noticed that just now :)
Make a hole for the brad
Done! Maybe you need to "bend up" each heart a bit so the flower isnt all flat
This is a card I made and decorated with this kind of flower (not the one in the pictures above though :)
The stamp I used is Vera som surpricedam
I hope you try this out if you have a heart punch!
Have a nice day
