Heart Shadow Box {Tutorial}

Back in October, I made Creepy Critter Boxes that I used as part of my Halloween decor. When I made them I wanted to make sure that I could take the creepy critters out and use the shadow box for something else. I was recently cleaning and found my shadow boxes again! *Yes, our house has been quite a disaster the past few months with the finishing and now completion of the craft room! I started brainstorming a variety ideas when this project came to mind. Ultimately, I'm very pleased with the way this came out! Pictures, just don't do it justice!

-Hot glue gun
-Glue sticks
-Tissues paper
-Hot glue gun helper flat wand(if you have it you will definitely want to use it for this project)
-Single sheet of scrapbook paper (for background)
-Cardstock or adhesive felt that the tissue paper can be glued on to.

Cut a heart using the cardstock or adhesive felt. Then cut one inch squares from the tissue paper. *My tissue paper was two toned so it gave for a nice pink and red effect! 

Plug in the hot glue gun, and start glueing! I folded the square in half and then in half again, so that I only had a quarter of the size of the 1x1 piece of tissue paper. I then place a dab of glue on the tip of the square bottom, and use the hot glue gun helper wand (as pictured above) to place it on the heart. I started from the bottom tip and worked my way up. My heart is about 8-10 inches in size, and it took me about an hour of non stop folding and glueing to finish this. 

Place the heart on to scrapbook paper, and then place it into the shadow box. Display accordingly!
