A Heart Full of Love

Author: Debbie

Ingredients

  • cardstock,, patterned and solids 6” x 12” (Valentine themed scrapbooking papers)
  • baker's twine
  • tape runner or double sided tape
  • plastic treat bags
  • treats
  • die cut hearts or Valentine themed stickers
  • Sizzix Bigz heart die with the Sizzix Big Shot machine (optional),, Links to these products below
  • heart shape to trace from

Instructions

  • Fold the 6” x 12” piece of card stock in half, short side up to create a 6” x 6” folded piece of paper.
  • With folded edge closet to you, fold it up again by 1/4” or so.
    Valentine craft
  • If using a Sizzix Bigz heart die or a heart shape to trace from, place the folded portion closest to you. (*If using the Sizzix Big Shot see below.)
  • Before tracing, place the heart shape to trace from on top of the folded paper (heart point at bottom).
  • Slide the heart shape down about 1/3 inch. The point of the heart should be hanging off of the fold. Peek ahead to the photo after Step 6, there is no heart point. The reason for this is to save your folds and not cut 2 individual hearts.
  • Trace and cut out your heart.
    Valentine craft
  • Open up the heart. You will see 3 crease lines in the center connected area of the heart.
  • Pinch up the center score line to create a “mountain” in the middle.

Notes

Gr8 Note:
*If using the Sizzix Big Shot machine, place the Bigz heart die on the cutting pad, bottom of the heart closest to you, blade side up. Place the folded paper on top of the blades, with the folded edge closest to you. Slide the paper up about 1/3” inch exposing the heart point of the blade at the bottom. The reason for this is, you want to “save” your folds. If you don’t see a portion of the blades showing, you will just cut 2 complete hearts.
