Upcycled Hearts Cards

Upcycled Hearts, perfect for Weddings...

If you are like me and seem to collect scraps of fabrics for those special projects, you will love making these cards. I made this card for a wedding anniversary and wanted to use colours that the couple would like - blues, greens and lilacs.

Firstly choose your fabrics, it maybe a piece of a wedding dress or a old card. You will need a few buttons or pearls, an old book (try charity shops) and a paper punch to create the effect around the heart.

Cut out your heart shape and back it on some old calico or strong fabric. I glued mine, then glue to the card. Cut out a heart shape out of your old book and glue or stitch in the centre. I then got some seed beads and glued these to the centre of the heart.

For the scattered flowers effect, punch out your papers into shapes and glue on with sequins or pearls for centres. I finished the card off with a watercolour paint white heart frame around my heart.

Uses up all your scraps and looks vintage with the old book papers.

Happy Making,
