Friendship woven heart

Posted on 26 Dec 2014

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a very festive Christmas celebration – around here things have been busy  with loads of exciting new products in the pipeline for 2015. But more on that later.
Now that the Christmas celebrations are over I am in the mood for getting to work on some other projects. So here goes…
I created this little friendship quote heart element as a reminder to myself.
cw friendship heart

I started off by cutting 2 tags with the top rounded using 2 different patterned papers. In the end the two tags together will form a heart shape.
On the one heart I added some double sided tape strips. On both tags I cut slits 3/4 of the way from the bottom straight edge to the top. These slits will be used to weave the tags together to for a heart.

Remove the double sided tape backing and cover the sticky side with glitter from the Chiswick range.
cw step 3

Use scrap paper and cut a decorative border using one of the beautiful border punches from Chiswick.
cw step 1

Weave the two tags together to form your heart. Adhere the woven strips together using adhesive to make it firmer. Then add sewing and decorative elements.

Add additional glitter strips once the tags are weaved detail 3

Add some of the small blue flowers from the border punch to the decorated heart. Add diamante, pearls, flowers and a border strip.

A nice easy project to get the creative juices going again. I love how the colours from all the different products worked so well together.

Creating can be a wonderful journey and therapy making sense of things where life cannot, and I have tuned my life into this philosophy.
