Happy new year!
My head is feeling a little fuzzy today to say the least...so off I popped to my shed in my pjs in an attempt to clear my head/stop eating for a few minutes!
To make the flowers it's quite simple and a little addictive.
I'm always looking for a quicker way to do things. The quickest way I found to make these flowers is to cut a circle, then snip into it creating a spiral. You can draw it first if it helps. Roll it in from the outside, then release and add a dab of glue in the middle to secure. You really don't need to be too neat and I love the way they always turn out slightly different. I made roughly 20 flowers.
Draw a heart or use a heart template, mine is approx 30cm in width and height. Draw another heart inside and cut out the middle. Wrap the card with natural ribbon for a neat finish to the back and to cover all bits of the cardboard. Originally I used E600 glue, but I then used the glue gun. I used some PVA for the flowers aswell. You don't need to mix and match your glues, as I said I have a very fuzzy head today. A handy dandy glue gun is your best bet.
