I saw this awesome heart wreath on this wonderful blog (The Idea room) and thought it was a perfect wreath for Valentine's day.
I purchased the foam heart at Hobby Lobby and purchased 2 yards of red felt at Walmart.
I used a 2" inch cirlce punch as my guide to cut out the circles needed and pinned them into the foam. I must have cut more than 300 circle pieces... I lost count after cutting so many.
The Idea room blog has better instructions than what I have placed below... please visit their site for instructions and inspiration.
|Felt Circle folded in half and then folded in half again.|
|Once circle has been folded and refolded a pin is placed thru at the bottom.|
|Instert pin into foam heart.|
|Heart wreath almost at completion....|

I got the Zutter Bind It All for Christmas and I'm having a hard time figuring it out. I am working on a journal that is 7 1/2 inches (Cover) and the inner pages are 7 2/8ths.... I have followed the instructions on the instruction manual but after I finish punching the inner pages... they do not match the holes to the cover page. I need help desperately... can someone please send me directions or if you have a video, I would love to see it. Thank you for your help.

This post has nothing to do with crafting but I just wanted to share it with everyone. As part of my New Year resolutions... I woke up this morning with the thought of joining a gym.. so I signed up my dear hubby and I. We went this afternoon and oh boy I used equipment I had never used in my life and my body is feeling the aches. I had planned in coming home and using my bind it all to create some journals but my bones ache and my daughter still needs to get bathed and into bed. I will update ya'll on how I'm doing my goal is to get healthy and loose some weight this year.
I plan to work on my journals tomorrow so I will post pics tomorrow. Good night everyone.
