Heart tags

I made these heart tags to attach to my heart and lip pillowboxes and wanted to share how I made them with Stampin Up!s small and large oval punches
First I folded a scrap of Pirouette Pink cardstock in half and punched it with the small oval punch like this:
I used my bonefolder to flatten out the crease.


Next, I folded a scrap of ridinghood red cardstock and used the punched piece of Pirouette pink to trace a guidline for my large oval punch.

With my guideline, I can see exactly where to punch to make a perfect matte for my heart tag.

I erase my guideline and glue the 2 pieces together.

I used the Hugs & Kisses stamp from my all holidays set to stamp the tag and added a circle fire rhinestone brad.


The last step is to attach it to my pillowboxes. Who needs a heart punch?!

OMG! I love this tutorial of yours!

Now I'll be needing another punch and I'm one of those people who hate them because of all the space they take in my small stamping area.
