Hearts A Flutter

Be it heart punches, large or small . . . .

Be it heart dies, large or small . . . .

Don't put them away --- YET . . . .

Great for Valentine's and a sign of love the heart is very versatile. I have used them for the Valentine's, they can be used to make shamrocks, they can be used upside down as candy treat holders, and now? Bunny faces and bunny eyes. . . . Getting close to Easter so here is a quick bunny put together using heart punches for the face and the eyes:

Have seen bits and pieces of this bunny here and there and on Pinterest so this is my bunny --- made up quickly --- will make other ones for tags on the kids Easter basket, or on a paper candies/treats bag. But this one was made quickly for the pattern.  He is basically a circle for the body with two different oval punches for his ears/feet. Smaller circles for the nose, mouth, and cheeks. Added two small black hearts for the eyes. Used the smallest flower punch from Marvy for the tail -- sponged the edges of all pieces except the tail.

Here are other projects made using heart punches and dies:

The above bunny card made with heart dies.

Shamrocks were made using hearts and then embossed on this card front.

This is a treat holder that holds choc kisses --- added a shamrock and it is for St Pattys Day.

This black and white card shows the heart shape for a wedding card -- one as the tuxedo and the other as a wedding dress.

This white heart ended up being a mustache for our favorite guy, Santa.

On this card I used hearts for the strawberries and added green stems.

This is a heart shaped card I made using Spellbinders Scalloped Heart dies.

The list goes on and on for all the uses for hearts---both punches and dies. Think out of the box for this shape as it is not just for love and Valentine's Day.  TFL and YOLO
