What You Need
Before your Start: Draw and cut out a small circle template using your compass , shot glass or something similar that measures approximately 1 inch in diameter.
Let Make It! Lay your template onto your felt and cut out 100 felt circles (you may need more if your cardboard heart is bigger, it takes about 6-8 circles to fill approximately a 2 inch area. Heat your glue gun. Glue your ribbon onto each side of the heart to form a loop. To make the ruffles fold a circle in half and then in half again. Place a dollop of glue on the bottom (see image below) .
Apply the felt ruffle to your cardboard cutout ruffle side up. Continue this process until your heart is covered. This takes time. Snuggle each piece up against each other (not to snug) and move across the cardboard heart until it is completely filled.
Then cover the edges using the same method. Turn the heart over and repeat on the back. Hang it up for Valentine ’s Day or just because.
*Katie’s Tid Bits Add a little bit of glitter to the edges of some of the ruffles for a little extra sparkle.
