Here is my project to share, Today I am using Spellbinders S4-296 Nested Hearts die template and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L Crafty Power Tape. I used these beautiful nested heart dies (3 total in the package, I used the medium sized for this project) to create this beautiful ornament.


To create this ornament, simply use the nested hearts die and cut out 10-12 of your desired sized heart (use only one size). From here paint them as you'd like (or leave them the patterned paper that you use, for this I use ClearSnap Smooch Spritz in Sea breeze to colorize my white (smooth) Bazzill cardstock. After they have dried, use the Crafty Power tape to adhere each side together to another folded heart (you will line them up gluing the wrong sides, left to right of the next heart.) When you have your desired fulness, simply close the two sides of the ornament, making sure you insert your twine to hang.


To accent I used some printed sheet music craft sheets by Donna Salazar and punched out stars using a star punch.


Here is a close up of the folds and attachments, now if when you fold the hearts and attach them together doesn't quite match up, no worries... you can accent the edges with a little paint (I used Folk Art by Plaid) to hide the mis patched seams.


Thanks for taking a peak today, make sure to leave a comment to be entered into the Spellbinders giveaway. Also I will continue to share some homemade gift ideas through out December, so I hope you will come back and join me!
