For my project I decided to go with a cute wall art. The scalloped squares are from a pre-made Die Cuts With A View stack so all I had to do was tear out the 3 grey sheets they are 8x8. Next I found some pattern paper I wanted (this happens to be DCWV as well) and I scored it with my Martha Stewart score board at every 1/2 inch mark. If you are doing fan folds I would highly recommend NOT using a light weight paper such as pattern paper, I had tons of problems with it but loved it so much I couldn't throw it out and start over with anything else! So after I was done with that I Used my Storybook cartridge and cut the "I" and "U" out at 3-3/4 on some dark red cardstock. I used my Sweethearts cartridge and cut that cute scalloped circle out at 3-1/2. I used George to cut the inner white circle out on a Terrifically Tacky Tape sheet and then after I had stuck it to the red hear I flocked it with white. I also used some silver cord to go around the heart leaving enough to tie it into a bow in the bottom right hand corner! I used my Mini Monograms to cut 2 small scalloped circles out of a different shade of grey at 2-1/4. I find that hot glue works best for adhering the fan folds so I used that to adhere everything on. I found this cute variegated pink ribbon in my stash and added it to the top for a cute "hanging" look.
