Instructions

  1. Trace the shape of hearts on paper. Red, pink or white works best, but so does the person’s favorite color. Make all different sizes of hearts to give the explosion of hearts an effect.
  2. Cut out the hearts with a slit at the point where the two bumps of the heart’s top meet. The slit should reach halfway down the heart.
  3. Roll the two arches of the heart so that they fold to the back of the heart. This should make the center of the heart pop out making it a 3D shape.
  4. Glue the sides of the arches together to hold that 3D shape.
  5. Let dry completely and repeat until you have the right number for your Heart Bomb.
  6. Using double sided tape, tape the hearts to the surface you want to bomb,
  7. Watch your loved one’s face light up when they see all your love!

Instructions:

  1. Cut out the shape of a heart in the plastic canvas. It’s ok if it’s boxy or square on the edges, the yarn will take care of that.
  2. Take your yarn and thread it through the tapestry needle.
  3. Start wrapping the yarn on the outer edge of the heart. Make it a round stitch or loop stitch to wrap the edges of the heart.
  4. Stitch the interior of the heart with regular stitches. See photo to get the look.
  5. Tie the yarn off on the back of the heart and trim the extra yarn.
  6. If you want to make a necklace, use the tapestry needle to work the leather cording through the back of the heart. Tie the cording and wear as a necklace.
  7. If you want a pin, glue a safety pin to the back of the heart and let dry.
  8. Give your heart away!

I tried learning Japanese about two years ago. Keyword tried.  I'm definitely planning on getting back into it in the future, though. ((: I learned a bit of Spanish a while ago, but I moved onto French and am currently working on that. And I do have plans to go back to Spanish after some time, and also learn at least a little bit of some other languages (mainly European ones). I probably have my hopes up a bit too high, though. ;D
