    Patchwork Heart Wreath:
    Step A: Trace the back of the heart frame shape onto 12”" x 12”" cardstock. Cut various sizes and shapes of assorted Pink, Red, and White decorated cardstock using decorative scissors. Use the Zip Dry glue to adhere the cardstock to the heart shape. Fill in the entire heart. After it'’s dry, cut out the heart shape and wire it to the frame of the back of the foil heart shape.
    Step B: Cut out both sizes of pennants using some of the assorted cardstock. Glue the smaller pennant on top of the larger one. Cut an 18”" piece of baker's twine and lay it out on your work surface. Glue the decorative pennants in roughly the center of the baker's twine. Embellish the fronts of the pennants using the heart and button stickers.
    Step C: Cut out two Pink glitter hearts. Glue a heart on each end of the bakers twine, immediately next to the pennant on each end. Use the excess bakers twine to tie the garland to the wire frame of the wreath. Trim any excess baker's twine. Use this leftover bakers twine to make a small bow to glue on top of each glitter heart. (If you don't have any excess baker's twine, simply cut another piece of it and make your bows from that.)
    Step D: Cut a 1-1/2”" x 12”" piece of decorative cardstock. Use the decorative scissors to trim across one edge. Punch out two 1-1/2"” circles and set aside. Place the strip of cardstock on the scoring board and follow the instructions for making a medallion. You will score the paper on each side every 1/2" using the scoring tool. After completely scored, gather it accordion style and press down on the edges. Glue the ends together. Push the tube down on table and gently form the medallion that will measure 3"” across. Glue one 1-1/2”" circle on each side of the medallion to hold it in place. Decorate the top with a heart and a button. Glue the medallion to the top left of the foil heart to complete.

    Cupid's Heart Wreath:
    Step A: Cut out two heart shapes from the Pink glitter cardstock. On one end of the 12” dowel, glue the hearts on each side of the dowel.
    Step B: Glue assorted Pink and Red feathers on the opposite end of the dowel. Wrap 2 yards of bakers twine around the dowel and on the end of the feathers. Glue to hold and set aside.
    Step C: Trace around the frame of the heart wreath onto the back of the chalkboard cardstock and cut out the shape. Use the cloth covered wire to attach the chalkboard heart to the back of the foil heart wreath. (Trust us, it won't look as nice if you use hot glue to do this.)
    Step D: Use the bistro chalk marker to write a message on the center of the heart. Glue or wire the arrow on to the front of the heart wreath to complete.
