Copy the pattern of the heart, move it on red cardboard and cut out. The workpiece lay on the mat and using a scalpel make small triangular slits at each pencil mark along the perimeter of the heart.
Fasten the thread on the backside of the heart with a piece of scotch tape and start up a thread with the second triangular slots on the right side of the center. This is your first (original) slot. Miss eleven slots clockwise thread in the twelfth, and then pass it to the second slot, from her thirteenth – and so on. Stop winding when you reach the second triangular notches to the left of Center.
In the center of the heart formed a circle. To fill it up, wrap the thread from the recess at the top of the heart to the triangular slits along the bottom edge. To do this, Miss eleven slots and thread in the twelfth, then go back in the hole, thread the thirteenth – and so on. In the same way, you wind the left half of the heart. Fasten the thread on the backside of the blank tape.
Turn on red cardboard two triangles with hearts to decorate the corners of the cards and cut them out. Drag the triangles on the gold paper and cut out two triangles slightly smaller.
