I love shaped pages and any shape that is symmetrical works well with this application, pumpkins, apples, fir trees, snowflakes, etc, etc.
- thin cardboard or chipboard
- heart template
- assorted papers
- colored paper
- hockey tape
- needle and thread
You can make the heart any size you want.
You need at least 10 hearts to make a nice book. Fold them in half, they should all fit nicely together.
I'm using thread but you could sew them on the machine or use a stapler. Just make sure the binding runs along the fold line.
You might want to outline where the heart pages will be when planning your design.
Leave a little gap between the covers.
The gap helps the covers move freely when opening and closing.
Trim off the ends of the tape with scissors.
Press down on the tape to make sure it is stuck on thoroughly.
You should be able to open and close the covers quite nicely.
I measured out a rectangle of paper slightly longer than the length of my covers.
Coat with some glue, leave the fold line free of glue.
Fold your cover paper in half and put into place, close the book so you leave slack in the fold line, let dry folded.
Starting on the first page add a little glue to the top of the page, turn the next page gluing the tops together.
Keep up this alternating pattern, gluing top then bottom thru all pages.
I added a few sequins and some more hearts.
