I’m trying to get back in to the swing of things since before the holidays. My regularly scheduled weeks have gone askew a little. Today for “Free Friday” I have a cute Valentine’s project for you:
My little “Valentine’s Tree” was actually quite simple to create and I even have the steps for you if you are interested in trying this out for yourself. Below is a photo close-up of the hearts. I curled all the tops of my hearts with my “Bone Folder” and then glued them in place one-by-one:
You only need a few supplies to complete one:
- Foam cone shape
- Ribbon (I used some retired ribbon)
- Straight Pins
- Glue Gun
- Hearts (I use the Hearts Framelits but you could use a heart punch)
- Designer Paper, (I used “More Amore”)
- Cardstock (I used “Pool Party Core’dinations” and “Primrose Petals”)
- Embossing Folders (I used “Perfect Polka Dots”)
- Stampin’ Dimensionals
Using the foam cone, add a piece of ribbon at the bottom using straight pins:
Continue gluing your hearts in place, alternating patterns and cardstocks until the first row is covered. Overlap your hearts to cover as much of the cone as you can:
I used a Stampin’ Sanding Block on my Pool Party Core’dintaions Paper and I used the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder on my Primrose Petals Cardstock.
Repeat adding ribbon and adding hearts as shown:
Keep working away at your layers. It really does go quicker than it looks as each layers requires less hearts:
Once you get to the top, here is how I created the topper. I curled 4 hearts and glued them together by gluing the sides:
Add hot glue to the very tip of your cone and a little onto the top of the hearts as shown:
Add topper to the hot glue and press in place for a few minutes:
I added flowers to the top hearts by cutting individual flowers from the “5/8″ Flower Trim”:
I like mine plain the way it is but you could also add pearls and rhinestones to really jazz it up.
