Here is what I made..
I actually seen this idea with the threaded hearts on Pinterest..of course. I started by tracing 3 sizes of hearts using a hearts die set. I used a paper piercing tool and starting at the centre points of the heart, trying to keep the holes the same width apart. I found that an ODD number of holes work best. I threaded a needle with some embroidery floss and tied a knot in one end, this is actually not necessary, tape works well too. Starting from the back and the centre, bottom hole, just work your way around the heart, going to the hole directly across from each other...does that make sense?? I used 3 strands of floss for the large heart and 2 strands for the smaller hearts. Here is what the back looks like, a mess, but it doesn't matter..
I stamped the Sentiment from the Sending Love stamp set and perched that cute little bird from the mini set Chickie. The tiny black hearts are the positive pieces from the new Heart of Heart dies set.
