How To Make An Upcycled Valentine’s Day Heart

Hi, Pam Bray here from Scrapbook flair today on the the May Arts Ribbon Blog! I recently found a chipboard heart at the dollar store and thought I could upcycle it using some pretty pattern paper and fabulous May Arts Ribbon.

STEP 1: I began by tracing the heart on to pattern paper; cutting it out with scissors. Adhere it to the top of the chipboard cycle.

STEP 2: Lay pattern papers, border strips, journal image and doily to decide placement on heart. Once happy with placement glue the pieces down and trim around the scallop edge of heart. Sand edges of heart.
