This Valentine Wreath is a classy way to decorate for the Holiday.
Kit I used is Confectionerie Paper Pack by Quirky Twerp
Epson Premium Matte Photo Paper
Mini Glue Dots
Fiskars Paper Trimmer
First, I printed out the papers; borderless and on both sides of the photo paper. Then youíll need to cut them into 2 inch by 11 inch strips and fold them in half. I used 12 strips which makes it an oval shape. If youíre looking for a rounder shape then I would do 8 strips instead of 12.
Using the mini glue dots, I put 3 dots on the edge of one of the strips and them joined the other end together to form a heart shape. I used glue dots but you can really use any kind of strong adhesive, the glue dots were just what I had on hand.
Continue to make these hearts until youíve made your desired number. Next you will want to attach the hearts together. I used the mini glue dots only on the edges of the heart. I wanted to leave a little space between the adhesive and youíll see why in a minute. Attach them all together to form your circle or oval.
Once youíve completed your circle or oval of hearts, youíll want to thread your ribbon in between two hearts and tie a knot. I left four hearts between where I thread the other end of the ribbon.
When you have the ribbon the your desired length, tie a knot there too. For the circle with eight hearts, Iíd probably have three hearts instead of four in between the ends of the ribbon. This is why I used glue dots, to leave space between the hearts for the ribbon to thread through. If you donít have glue dots and youíre using another kind of adhesive you just have to plan the ribbon placement ahead of time and insert the ribbon while gluing the hearts together.
Lastly, trim your ribbon ends and hang your wreath.
