December Daily® 2021 | Creating A Foundation Page Using The Plastic Hearts

Today I'm playing along with some of our December Daily® Creative Team members in sharing an idea for using the December Daily® Plastic Hearts. I'm super excited to see what everyone creates and shares using these hearts. 

The plastic heart did sell out during our Order Selection Period this year but you could replicate many of the ideas shared by cutting or punching out hearts using pattern paper or transparencies. 

Check out my starting place/foundation pages for my 2021 December Daily® album here

Here's an overview video of how my idea came together: 

And some basic information: 

For this page I ended up using 2 sheets of 10x8 pattern papers from the Main Kit (the size is actually 11x8.25 inches which is the size of the outside of the page protectors) and cut a 5.5 inch x 7 inch rectangle about 1/2 inch in from the outside edges of both sheets to create a window home for my heart mobiles. 

The hearts were stitched together by running them through my sewing machine (watch the video for details). Essentially you run one plastic heart (no special needle needed) through with a straight stitch and then let it keep stitching past the end of the heart for a few seconds before starting on the next plastic heart. 

I initially only ran the hearts through the machine in a single row and then ended up adhering a heart to the back of each of the original hearts so that it was double-sided. If doing this again I would adhere the hearts back to back first and then run them through the machine (I ran mine through my machine again after adhering the hearts back to back). 

I love being able to see through from one page/story to the next and this feels like a fun addition to my album - especially the motion of the hearts twirling. 

During December I'll add photos or a story to the blank portion of these pages. You can hear me talk through a few ideas in the video above and I'll share a video when I come to this page in my album during the month. 

Big thanks to the December Daily® Creative Team for inviting me to play along today!

      It's such a fun tool - love the texture it can bring to a project.

    Seeing the “This story has my heart” a few pages behind the heart mobile has inspired me to cut the words apart to pair with a page of hearts. (I am working in 6x8 so need to cut the phrase to make it fit). Since my sewing machine is broken and I didn’t order the transparent hearts I am going to punch hearts from pattern paper and photos and tape them to bakers twine, sandwiching the twine between the hearts. Thanks for the inspiration!
