Only five days remain until Papertrey Ink will be taking pre-orders for the super fab scalloped punches from Marvy!  One of my favorite new shapes we will be offering is the heart.  It will be available in four sizes and is so fun to play with!  Today’s project utilizes the smallest of the hearts (referred to as extra jumbo).  I found that most of the Faux Ribbon sentiments fit inside, making this particular heart punch a fun way to make your greeting the focal point of your project.  I also discovered an easy way to turn the hearts into unique scalloped photo corners.

1. Punch heart from cardstock.  Apply adhesive to the back.

2. Adhere heart to the back corner of your card front, allowing the "arches" of the heart to protrude from the edges.

3. Fold over one arch onto the cover, using a bone folder to crease into place.

4. Repeat step 3 for the opposing arch.

For my final project, I also added brads to the corners as a finishing detail. And just think, the larger the heart utilized for this technique, the larger the photo corner you could get!
