I wanted to make some valentines for my grand nephews Rhys, Henry, and Eben. I whipped these up last night using 3 of my Bon Vivant fabrics from Windham 32164-1 (Red Paris Map) 32169-1 (Red poodle) and 32167-7 (Black Texture), black felt, Strathmore Bristol board, Fiskers pinking shears, acid free Elmer’s Craft Bond adhesive and a Sharpie marker!
Step 1 – draw the smallest heart shape on a heavy paper and cut out your template. Tape the template to one of the fabrics and cut around the edge with pinking shears.
Step 2 – Place your fabric heart down on the next piece of fabric or felt (tape or pin) and cut a slightly larger heart out.
Step 3 – Spray the back of the smallest heart with the spray adhesive and press onto the larger heart
Step 4 – Place the combined hearts onto a piece of bristol board and cut a slightly larger heart out
Step 5 – Spray the back of the combined hearts with adhesive and press onto bristol board.
Flip over and write your message with a Sharpie marker!
P.S. If you prefer to use the grey paisley fabric in the backround it is #32165-4 also from my Bon Vivant collection from Windham fabrics. Enjoy your Valentines Day!
