  • Cut 3/8" wide strips of aluminum flashing with serrated edge scissors
    (I got serrated scissors in the kitchen department at the dollar store)
    Bend into a heart shape
    Glue the edges together with E-6000 and then clamp with a clothespin until dry
    Trace the metal heart on a thin sheet of clear plastic
    *I use the tops of takeout containers
    Cut out and glue the metal heart to the plastic using Aleene's Tacky Glue
    Add more glue around the outside edges so that it's air tight

  • When dry, cut out book page hearts and fill with beads and jewelry pieces
    Mix equal parts of Glaze Coat and stir for a few minutes
    Fill the hearts and pop the bubbles with a long arm lighter
    Let dry overnight in an unoccupied part of the house or outside under a box
    Create "S" hooks with heavy gage wire and glue on the back with E-6000
    When dry, hang from a chain
