Tuesday Tipping over at Kaisercraft

I am up this week for the Tuesday Tip - all a bit nerve wracking as what I think is pretty cute maybe just really dumb to others!! LOL!!! - so here it goes - hope you like:

For this flower I took several sheets of paper and punched out quite a few hearts and inked all the edges.

Using a circle as the base I have then glued one layer of hearts around the bottom overlapping the heart as you go around

Turn the circle over and work on the reverse by repeating the pattern so it forms a larger base.

Take a smaller circle and adhere hearts as you have done on the larger circle.

For one look you can now layer your two circles together and adhere a pearl brad.

For something a little extra, take 3 hearts and join together like so.
Continue to make 5 of these.

Place a pearl brad in the centre of a circle and then adhere the 5 heart pieces around the brad and squeeze the hearts together to provide some height.

Use on a layout or on a card like I have done here for a simple yet effective floral embellishment.
