Valentines Tutorials

How about some LOVEly tutorials today to get you going on your Valentines fun!

Woven Heart Tutorial from Bev
Today I'd like to share this cute woven ribbon heart. It can be used on  a card or even a great accent on a Layout.  You can do this using either a sewing machine or scotch tape.

If you don't have a sewing machine.. totally scotch tape
each ribbon securing the ends. You could also
hand stitch a running thread around the heart to
help secure it. Do what works best for you.

Draw the heart shape on the ribbon side again for a pattern as above sample.
Here I showed the underside after stitching'.
As you can see I am showing you both at once.
I tried both to prove it can be done.

After you have the Woven Ribbon Heart
you can trim and accent it any way you like.
Mount it on a card or layout as an accent.
I attached 2 cards using the above methods.
Both worked fabulously.
