Create a single blossom, or a full bouquet of paper slice form puffy heart flowers with paper leaves and wooden dowel stem. Cut the shapes non-symmetrical hearts in the cut file layout from the same cardstock. Fold each heart in half. Begin with heart #1, apply glue to the back of the right half, then join it to the left half of heart #2. Join right half of heart #2 to the left half of heart #3, and so forth. Join 1-6 and 7-12 into heart halves, then join the halves WHILE INSERTING approx. 1/4” of the end of your painted wooden dowel stem (approx. diameter 5/32”, cut approx. 9.5” long). Glue stem in place with strong glue. Fold leaves in half, then position first approx. 2” below heart tip, enclosing the stem within the two halves, overlapping and aligning the leaf edges and gluing securely to stem. Position the second leaf closely under the first. NOTE that the heart is “wider” than it is “front to back”, so you may wish to try to orient the leaves directly to the left and to the right.
