May Arts White Ruffled Ribbon
Other: 6” x 4” painted craft wooden fence; 10” of 18 gauge wire

1. Apply the green Paper Lace Sticker (border) to the bottom of the fence.
2. Apply Glue Arts Mini Adhesive Squares to the back of the Paper Doily; adhere to the front of the Plaid pattern paper; trim with scallop edge scissors around heart shape; then adhere to the left side of fence using the larger Adhesive Squares. 

3. To make the accordion folded flower, cut 2 – 12” x 1.5” strips of Lollipops pattern paper (cut one edge with a scallop blade/scissors); accordion fold down the length of each strip; then using the Glue Glider Pro with Perma Tac attach both ends to each other to form a circle – with the scallop edge on the outside.
4. Punch/cut a 2” circle from white cardstock; apply a line of hot glue with Glue Arts Glue Gun; then place the accordion circle on the hot glue while pushing the outside edges in to make the flower about 3” – 3.5” wide. Hold in place briefly until the glue is cooled.
5. Apply a piece of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to the back of the accordion flower and adhere it to the bottom of the doily heart attached to the fence.
6. Punch a 2” scallop edge circle from the Tonal Polkahearts pattern paper and adhere to the front center of the accordion flower using Adhesive Squares. Apply the Layered Flower Button Dot, Cut Out heart and the “Forever Sticker” to the accordion flower. Add a few coordinating beads to the Heart Stick Pin and place it just behind the sticker. Then apply the additional chipboard pieces above the flower using the U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam.

Tip: Add a tiny bead of hot glue with the Glue Gun just below the last bead on the Heart Stick Pin to keep the beads from sliding as you position the pin.

7. On the right side of the fence, apply the Chipboard Shape (large pink flower) to the fence with the U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam. Punch or cut 3 hearts (leaves) from Mini Plaid pattern paper (reverse is green) and attach to the fence behind the flower with Mini Adhesive Squares. Thread the Epoxy Chipboard Button with white embroidery thread and adhere to the center of the Chipboard Flower with and Adhesive Square.
8. Adhere the “Hugs for Sale” Sticker to the fence below the flower with U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam; apply the Fabric Favorites (xxooxx) sticker onto the tag; then tie a knot in a 4” strip of ribbon and apply a small dot of hot glue with the Glue Gun to the back of the bow and press onto the top of the sticker.
9. For the butterfly in flight, first cut out the butterfly from the Cupcake Love Cut Out Sheet. Take a 10” piece of wire and wrap it several times around a pencil or paintbrush leaving about 1” straight on both ends, then pull and shape the wire as desired. Using the Glue Gun adhere the wire to the back of the fence post and the back of the butterfly.

Tip: To really secure the wire in place, add another line of hot glue on top of the already glued wire.

10. To finish the project, attach the LOVE Mini Banner to the back of the scalloped heart and the butterfly using Mini Adhesive Squares.
