The wonderful craft and gift shop Japonica in Exmouth, Devon has inspired us this week.
The title of a Louis Armstrong song, "What a Wonderful Word".
My project comes from the first line 'I see trees of green....red roses too...' so I've made some red roses! These are BIG roses made from the blue heart punch from Woodware.
I've decorated a heart scrapbook tin with a heart doily and stuck the roses to the doily adding the punched maidenhair fern afterwards.
The photo shows that you need to punch 10 hearts and how to stick the hearts together.
Once stuck with PVA glue, apply red ink to all the edges and curl the tops of the hearts over to curve the 'petals'. Join the hearts together to form four cones in different sizes.
Turn the point of the single heart up and fold flat.
Cut the points off the two middle shapes and put one inside the other sticking together with a blob of PVA glue.
They look very realistic and about life size too.
