Hearts Collection Wall Art

So, while browsing Pinterest a while back, I found a paper craft project I just had to copy. So, even though I would like to say I'm the brilliant one behind this artwork, I can't. This very simple project is a bit time consuming, but worth it!

I used the new Hearts Collection Framelits (the two smallest dies) as well as the small heart punch to give me a variation of sizes. This heart is about 8 1/2" wide and tall. It could be created much larger, but I liked this size for my 12 x 12 frame (that I hang in my dining room and change out the artwork on a regular basis). I store my 12 x 12 artwork pieces in a top loading scrapbook.

  • Calypso Coral card stock (122925)
  • Whisper White card stock (100730) 1 pc 12 x 12 and 1 pc for your heart (my heart is approx. 8 1/2 x 8 1/2)
  • Pearls (119247)
  • Hearts Collection Framelits (125599) - two smallest sizes
  • Small Heart Punch (117193)
Baker's Tips:
  • Cut out a heart from Whisper White card stock. It can be free handed, but honestly I'm too much of a perfectionist for that. I used a small die cut out in colored card stock, and used a projecter to blow it up to the size I wanted.
  • Cut out a TON (I didn't count, and I'm not about to) of hearts from the Calypso Coral card stock, in different sizes, and score all of them down the middle.
  • Fill up your heart with your design. Remember, flowers lose petals; it's okay to have singles to fill up the gaps! I used tweezers to help place the petals.
  • Pearl centers is totally optional, although I really like it. It's a bit tricky because the petals want to kick them off! Roll up a mini glue dot with your fingers and with tweezers press down in the centers of your flowers (it will stand up a bit). Set pearl on top of this little glue ball.
