Hanging Heart Tutorial

Our Guest Designer, Mandy, has created a beautiful Hanging Heart for us..

Hi all, here is a tutorial on how I made this hanging heart. I love to make little hangings … they are fun to make. Hope you feel inspired.

Take a chipboard, mountboard or die-cut heart

Then sort through your collectables to find images you want to use to build up a collage on the heart

Adhere the ‘ribbon’ behind the ladies hat. Stamp the bird cage (I’ve used a brown stazon) to add some interest

Edge the images with chalk ink. Collage your collectables together on the heart, layer them up to give the heart more dimension

Finally, add a ribbon to create the hanger and I’ve also added some crackle accents to the clocks, cogs and the roses

You can make your own hanging decoration from anything – the Hanging Arch below comes from a little ‘tag book’ on a book ring. I like to use these arches as little hangers. Firstly, I covered completely in the Dynasty paper from the Miss Empire collection and then gessoed over the top to give me a more muted background so I could begin to colour and collage. I pieced a lot of the Miss Empire Collectables together. I highly recommend these little bags of goodness.

I hope you enjoy making your own hanging decoration using some fabulous Kaisercraft materials.
