The Steps

Cut a Square of Red Card 11cm x 11cm and mat the Heart Paper onto it.

Step 4
Adhere the 2 squares to the base square.

Step 5

Step 6
Cut four flags of bunting and adhere to the card base as shown in the sketch.  Use Twine bows at either end, and punch hearts to go in between each flag.

Step 7
Wrap Twine around the centre of the square where the Heart will sit.  Adhere the Heart to the centre of the Square.

Step 8
Add the Love Me sentiment.
