A while back I shared this Vintage Woven Heart
And another one I made around Christmas.
Last week on Tag Tuesday, the theme was HEART, so I thought I'd make a tag version of the woven heart pocket.
PDF TEMPLATE HERE
This tag is a 3" version, but you can make any size depending on how large your starting paper is.
|I like to make my template from a manilla folder, and I take advantage of the nice fold already in place.|
|Weave each strip, and then push it toward the top to make room for the next. Make sure you can open the heart like a pocket after each strip. If it doesn't, you tried to weave the folded strip as one unit. Undo that strip and try again.|
|Here's the pocket with the weaving done. Isn't it cute?|
|This is what I mean when I say it opens like a pocket.|
|Since you can peek inside, we want it looking nice too! Use your heart as it's own template to cut a liner for the 2 sides of the inside. I trim the V a little so it fits snugly inside.|
|I finished off with some distress ink to the edge and an eyelet to the front-left, and back-right, and tied it with a little jute.|
|These can be a little addictive. They are great for using up "trim" pieces of papers and fabrics.|
There's still time to make some of these for Valentines. They are perfect for slipping in a little love note, gift card, recipe, or tiny gift. Let me know what you come up with!
