OH my Gosh!! arent these too stinking cute!?
Ive been cutting out little hearts and gluing them together and I love how they are turning out and thought I just have to share them with my cute little creative bloggy peeps!
(thats you guys!)
these are so simple.. and really really cute!
So, make a little pattern, what ever size you want. I used half a heart and traced it on my folded paper. You will need to cut out 8 hearts. I love how they look out of the glitter paper! but you can use any paper you want.
then you'll need a pair of scalloped scissors and you will need to cut out 7 HALF hearts. use your original pattern piece and just cut around it about a 1/4 of an inch.
Arent they cute! they look like little angel wings.. you can use what ever you want to cut them out of , but I would use something a little thicker then plain paper.. wanna know what I used?? only cause I didnt have any cardstock, but i love how it works out... I used photo printing paper. Its just the right thickness and works perfectly!
Anyways.. next step.. you just start gluing them together, alternating the hearts and half hearts. glue one half of the heart and place one of the scalloped pieces on it. then glue another side of one of the hearts, then another scalloped piece. Continue sandwhiching a scalloped piece between each heart half until youve used all 8 hearts and 7 scallop halves.
Then glue the final two ends together and ta dah! you have an almost completed ornie! (youre gonna love it!)
Next cut a piece of pipe cleaner and make a loop on the end. put some glue on the straight end and stick it down into the center of the heart.
Now, tie a "foofy"(or is that fuffy) ribbon on and attach another string, ribbon or wire to hang it with.. and
its all done!
They really are soo cute and they only take a few minutes to make.. the most time consuming part is cutting out the pieces!
You can make them out of any paper... and just about any size. I think I'll be taking a trip to michaels to get some more glittery paper. I want to make some big ones!
So there you have it! a short and sweet little valentine project!
Now go have some fun and make some!
have a great day!
