STEP 2: Create the card base

Begin by making your card. Fold a piece of thin card or thick craft paper in half. You can choose the size of your card. I would suggest making it square and using a white or very light colour so the heart design can stand out. Next, use a pencil to trace the heart shape on your card base.

STEP 3: Cut out your paper spirals

Take a small piece of coloured craft paper and cut it into a spiral, using the spiral on the template as a guide.

STEP 6: Start laying out the card design

Now you have created you paper roses it is time to use them to make a heart shape on your card. Start gluing the roses inside the traced heart pattern on the card, starting along the border of the heart.

STEP 7: Frame your rose heart

Adding a paper frame around the edge of the card makes the rose heart really stand out. Take 4 thin strips of coloured paper and glue them along the sides of the card to create a frame.
