My Digital Studio Hybrid Page
I printed this page on 8-1/2" x 11" Whisper White Cardstock. I added the Matted Picture and brads. Very Simple!

The Japanese Kusudama is a ball made out of identical origami shapes glued together.
These flowers have many decorative uses on their own!

Michelle VanWiggeren made this beautiful Kusudama Valentine's Wreath.

Make a Scalloped Heart Frame!
I found this idea on page 47 of the 2011 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog. I tried several ways to re-create the So Saffron Scalloped Heart Frame and the following is the best method I found to assure the frame is an even cut all the way around.

First, punch your shape with the Full Heart Punch
Center the punched heart in the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die (page 215). I used Dotto adhesive to hold it in place because it is a temporary adhesive and easy to remove from my embosslit.

Now I can place the punched frame centered in my Embosslit.

After running it through the Big Shot, Carefully separate the frame from the paper. It is very fragile, so take your time.

I used the 2-way glue to adhere it to my project.
