Turn Paper Hearts into a Flower

We are entering the season where flowers will be everywhere including on our cards.  Spring is just around the corner and celebrations such as Mother’s Day and the new wedding season aren’t too far behind.  Now is the time to start creating those cards and this flower card created using simple hearts is a great, easy way to start.

1

Create the card base, first, by cutting a 11” x 7” piece of cardstock and fold it in half.  This card base was created using kraft cardstock.  Punch a decorative edge on the right hand side of the front flap.  Shown is the Embroidery Punch by Martha Stewart.

2

Cut a 5 ½” x 7” piece of cardstock and place it on the inside of the card by using a tape runner to add tape to the left side of the card and then closing it to adhere the cardstock to the front.

3

This is what the card base will look like at this point.

4

Trim a 4” x 6 ¾” piece of cardstock and a 3 ¾” x 6 ½” piece of patterned paper.  Attach it to the front of the card.  These pieces should fit right up to the punched edge.

5

Now, punch or die cut several hearts from cardstock.  The number of hearts will vary depending on the size.  This flower was made using a 1 ¾” heart so it needed 7 hearts to complete the flower.

6

Fold each heart in half.

7

Cut a strip of green cardstock and adhere it with a tape runner for the stem.

8

Arrange the hearts into a circle pattern and attach them by running a small line of tape on one side of the folded heart. Make sure that all of the hearts are facing the same direction and the tape is added to the correct side.  It’s ok to leave a little space in between as flowers aren’t perfect.

9

Add an adhesive stone to finish off the center of the flower.

10

Create one more heart and cut it down the center.  Arrange it around the stem to resemble leaves and attach it using the tape runner.

Stamp a sentiment onto the inside to finish off the card.

Now that the flower season has arrived enjoy sharing this very special flower with someone you know.  They are easy to create so you can quickly build up your card stash and have them on hand when you need one.  Who knew that a simple heart could be made into a beautiful flower?  Now you do!
