- Die-cut tags and heart shapes. Adhere temporary adhesive to the back of the large and medium heart die- cuts. Layer the large heart die-cut over the tag die-cut. Use the needle tip tool to poke holes through the tag, around the heart shape. (Tip: The further apart the holes, the longer your stitches will be.) After punching holes around the large heart die-cut, center the medium heart die-cut within the larger outline and repeat the same technique.
- To stitch the heart shape onto the tag, thread needle and begin from back surface. Bring your needle through the first hole on the largest heart — pull thread almost all the way through, but leave a little at the end. This small piece can be secured to the back of the tag with a photo split.
These products will help even the beginner crafter create a flawless design.
