Valentine’s Day Heart Flower Wreath and Smart-Fab Review
If you want to look at some wonderful ideas of what you can use Smart-fab for look at all the drool worth stuff on Smart-fab’s Pinterest. I just spent the better part of a hour glued to the screen there when I should have been working on my post. Or check out the Smart-Fab Facebook page for more info and regularly held Giveaways of Smart-fab material.
What did we do with our Smart-Fab?
I love that I received red, purple and orange because they were perfect for the idea I had in mind.
They sent a sample book with the other colors they carry and I am in love with a light pink color so I may have to get it before making Super Bub’s Teacher’s wreath.
I couldn’t find a heart shaped base so I made one out of just thick cardboard. I drew a heart on the cardboard and cut it out. Easy peasy.
I traced the cardboard heart onto the Smart-fab and cut two out to cover my cardboard front and back. I glued the cut outs to the cardboard. Be careful because the hot glue can seep through and it is hot, so don’t get burnt. I learned that one the hard way, ouch.
I cut 1-2 inch strips of Smart-fab. I made 30 but ended up having to make another 30 because I didn’t cut enough. This depends on the size of heart you cut out.
Fold the strips in half and cut about 1/2 down on the folded end all the way across. Kids helps here with the safety scissors.
Roll the strips individually and glue the bottoms. Here is a good shot of the texture of the Smart-Fab material.
Glue each flower closely together to the wreath.I made two rolls around the heart but this would also depend on the size of the heart you cut out.
I cut one small piece of material about 3 inches wide. I glued the sides in on each other and then glued to the back on the heart to make a hanger.
Then hang. That is all I did!
I’m almost thinking of keeping it and hanging it on my door.
We were given a sample box of Smart-Fab for reviewing purposes. Although all opinions are my own and I only review things I like and think others would like.
