Materials:
 Die cut felt heart (approximately 3″ for the small and 5″ for the large)
 Aleene’s® Jewel-It Embellishing Glue
 Flat sequins (I chose red, for the red heart)
 Tulip® Beads in a Bottle Paint (pearl pink for the red heart, semiprecious gold for the small pink heart and
semiprecious silver and gemstone red for the large pink heart)
 Toothpick
 Small piece of aluminum foil (3″ x 3″)

Instructions:

Red Heart
1. Squeeze dots of glue around the edge of the heart.
2. Sqeeze a small amount of glue onto the foil.
3. Pour out a small amount of sequins near the foil.
4. Dip the toothpick lightly into the glue.
5. Use the toothpick to pick up the sequins and position them into place on the heart. You may need a 2nd toothpick (without any glue on its tip) to push the sequin into place.
6. Once dry, use the Pearl Pink Beads in a Bottle to squeeze random dots. If you have a heart with a lacy pattern as
those in the sample, follow along the die cut pattern.
7. Allow to dry before moving.

Pink Heart

1. Use the Semiprecious Gold Beads in a Bottle to squeeze random dot working your way from the interior to
exterior of the heart. If you have a heart with a lacy pattern as those in the sample, follow along the die cut pattern.
2. Allow to dry before moving.

Large Pink Heart

1. Use the Gemstone Red Beads in a Bottle to fill the interior of the heart with random dots. Use Semiprecious
Silver Beads in a Bottle to squeeze random dots along the perimeter. If you have a heart with a lacy pattern as
those in the sample, follow along the die cut pattern.

2. Allow to dry before moving.
