Heart plaques

I have been making a few heart plaques for my craft stall and sewing plaques are always popular so when I bought the cute wooden sewing bits and MDF hearts at Ally Pally I had this in mind. The paper is a mag freebie, stamp is Kaisercraft, lace and ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I used some embroidery thread on the buttons and cotton reel and added some pearls.

For the second one I have used a heart which I made at The MDF Man's make and take using paper from The House of Zandra. His tip on rough cutting the papers and then holding the heart over the edge of the desk and sanding the edges was really useful. It gives a really neat edge.

We only covered the hearts on his stall so when I got home I added the ribbon and embellishments. The lovely burlap paper flowers and butterfly were a gift from my friend Lynsey. I also used some paper flowers with tiny buttons from Hobbycraft, a button and pearls.

These are a little bit different Marianne, the tape measure ribbon on the top one is the perfect finishing touch.

These are so gorgeous! It's hard to choose a favourite because I love the sewing theme and those hessian embellishments look stunning... So they're both equally beautiful!
