Hi, Pam here today on the the May Arts Ribbon Blog! I recently found a chipboard heart at the dollar store and thought I could upcycle it using some pretty pattern paper and fabulous May Arts Ribbon.
I began by tracing the heart on to pattern paper; cutting it out with scissors. Adhere it to the top of the chipboard cycle.
Lay pattern papers, border strips, journal image and doily to decide placement on heart. Once happy with placement glue the pieces down and trim around the scallop edge of heart. Sand edges of heart.
Once the loops are formed; place a small piece of floral wire through the center loop.
Twist wire to secure all of the loops together.
Fluff bow loops out. Adhere to top of prepared heart.
Repeat with May Arts Variegated Blue/Ivory Ribbon. Adhere around Drawn Heart Print Bow that was placed to the front of prepared heart.
Adhere “Love” sentiment to pattern paper. Using Xacto Knife to trim paper from around prepared sentiment. Sand edges of sentiment.
Adhere to front of prepared heart.
Add key lock to heart.
