heart to heart

I have been browsing the do crafts mag, and saw some beautiful hanging hearts (which I collect actually) so thought I would give it a go, picked out some double sided 12x12 card which I wasnt too upset about using (think it was out of one of those bargain packs) while I did a sample, think its from my minds eye (could be wrong sorry) anyway, stuck to the letter of the tutorial, however, the card was a bit thick as it tells you to fold each piece in half before curling, also wasnt as smooth as it could have been because of the fold (when I looked closely neither was it in mag)   

so then I tried again, with paper that was in a bulk buy, and halved the size of the strips, but still used double sided so it didnt matter, it was much better this time, easier to bend and looks better overall!  I think if not using double sided card/paper folding would be necessary but I think double sided, thinner strips are the way forward!!
I will be making some more soon!

thanks for looking xx

  4. These are Gorgeous Paula, love the papers on both of them of course the second one wins with me everytime...lol guess what colour i love :) I Have found moulding these sort of shapes gently over a bottle or rolling pin sometimes helps to stop the buckling.Sometimes just trying to curve them tends to buckle the card/paper. Hope that helps xx
