They're very pretty.  What did you use to make?  And how big are they?  This looks like it might be a fun project to do with my daughter - she loves hearts and butterflies!

Thanks!  Smiley

Seereeoslee - they're really simple. I used old-fashioned brown parcel paper, some red envelopes cut up for the backing and linen-coloured card. Just fold a rough square of brown paper in half and draw half a heart shape against the fold so that when you cut it out you get the whole heart. Draw whatever design you like in pencil on one side of the paper and then cut the shapes out with a craft knife - you could just use craft punches in the right shapes though  Smiley Glue the heart, stick onto red paper and cut around in a larger heart shape, then stick it all onto the cream card. Done!

Very cute! Whose mother wouldn't want to get one of those on Mother's Day?  Smiley

Nothing broadcasts competence and success quite like designer modern decor.
