Tissue Paper Heart

I made this colorful heart out of cardboard and tissue paper.   I had a template of a heart and used durable cardboard.  Lined three different colors of tissue papers and cut several 5" circles of each color.

On a plate I put Elmers and had a pencil with an eraser.  I wrapped each circle of tissue paper around the pencil and dabbed in the glue and placed on the cardboard heart.   I had a section for each color and made sure the heart was full of tissue.  The fact only the center of the circle is dabbed onto the makes if fluffs the other part.  I sponged the white tissue paper with pink paint to add dimension.  I attached a red curly ribbon and hung it on a sconce in my bedroom.
