DIY Decoupage Heart

Hello everyone, i hope you are all having a lovely Saturday! I certainly have as i had another craftanoon,wahhhoooo for craftanoon's. I don't think there's anything more relaxing than getting all creative and acting like a kid after watching art attack haha. I'm in the middle of decorating my house and adding little touches here and there, and i have to do as much as possible in the next two weeks, but that's another story haha. So today i have a simple decoupage heart tutorial, with just a few simple bits that you may even have around your house like i did.

 What you will need:

- card board, i just used an old box
- Glue i used pritt stick power and glu & fix all purpose extra strong clear glue
- paper of your choice, mine is just some old wrapping paper

How to make it:

- Draw and cut out two hearts, or if you wish to to a different shape it makes no difference. The reason i done two was to make the heart a little thicker you can do just one or more if you want.
- Stick the two together with your stronger glue for example i used the glu & fix to do this. 
- If you want yours to hang now add your whole for the ribbon to go though.
- Cut your choice of paper in to large rectangles, size and neatness doesn't matter at all.
- Using the pritt stick, stick on random rectangles in a patchwork fashion until entire heart and sides are covered.
- Rub the pritt stick all over the top to ensure all pieces are stuck down and to add a slight shine.
- If this is a hanging item thread your ribbon through and tie a bow 

And TA DAAA it really is as easy as that!

    1. I've been wanting to do it for ages but for some reason it was a lot more difficult in my head than actually doing it, so as these where just bits i didn't really care about just in case it did go wrong i thought i would just give it a go. Now that i know how easy it is i think i'll be doing Alot more haha x
