{Thu} Technique: Origami Hearts

Thursday, January 21, 2016

(This is my second post...if you would like to see my project for MHKDesigns' Jan Challenge, please click HERE)

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

My kids and I are starting on Valentine's Craft Projects (or more like...find a craft project to entertain my kids...), so I thought I would make origami hearts with them!
We used 12x12 scrapbook papers and they are great as wall decoration!

This is where I found a photo tutorial, 'cause I couldn't remember how to do it - Easy Origami Heart.

Then, I decided to make a card for a few challenges:


I used Quad Prints (Club Scrap) for the hearts (just the right weight - not too thin nor thick)...I trimmed 3 squares: 1.75", 2.5" and 3". 
I place a strip of washi tape on the black card base and hand-drew stitches with a black pen. After folding the hearts, I placed them on the washi tape.
I stamped and heat embossed "love" (Club Scrap - Celebrate Jumbo stamp set) in silver on black cardstock, cut it out and adhered on card.
Finally, I added some sequins for some shine!
