Top tip: Ensure to leave a small amount of white showing between the hearts.

Step 3

 Lay the punched hearts all over the larger heart shape allowing them to hang over the edges. Once you’re happy with the arrangement, fix each heart in place with one or two 3d foam pads.

Step 5

To create the banner, stamp out your chosen sentiment on to white cardstock before trimming down to a strip measuring approximately 1cm in height. Fold each end inwards then fold again outwards creating the banner shape. Cut each end into a fish tail shape, then fix in place using 3d foam pads.

Step 6

Bend up all the flexible pins on the reverse side of a 15 x 15cm box frame, then carefully remove the backing board.

Step 7

Cut a panel of white cardstock to fit inside the frame, attach the heart shape to the centre using more 3d foam pads then lay the panel inside the box frame, replace the backing board and fold back the flexible pins to secure in place.
