A Hanging Heart

Yesterday I made a FaceBook Live video (now on YouTube) making a cute little hanging heart. I used 8 3" squares and a focal point.

I show in my video how to fold the 8 squares and assemble them into the ornament.  I was reminded of this fun technique when I seen Kim Kesti of Spellbinders make one on her Dec. 15, 2020 video (I can only find it on the Spellbinders FB page under the video tab.)  
The print paper is from my stash and it did crack on the folds.  I made another ornament (sharing tomorrow) using Fun Stampers Journey paper and it cracked, too. Both these card stocks are rather heavy and that could be the issue but I don't know.  I'll have to try again with a light weight paper or card stock.

I tried to match the color of a couple hearts in the print paper for my focal point.  I used Spellbinders new Forever Love Hearts die set.  I also used their newest product, Bearly Art Glue, and absolutely LOVE the fine tip!! (It has been so popular that it's out of stock already!)  I added some clear rhinestones from my ancient stash and really blinged my ornament!
I really had to weigh down my heart on the ornament to get the glue to get a good grip.  A few acrylic blocks did the job great.  I even glued the back side flaps to make sure my ornament stayed together.
