Confetti Heart how-to

As seen in Ruche’s Bridal Guide (Ruche giveaway still open below)
How To: Start with 2 pieces of vellum and cut out a heart shape.
Next, stitch around the edge using a sewing machine or needle and thread. Leave about a 2 inch opening and fill with confetti of your choice. Try: paper confetti, tissue confetti, glitter, sequins, candy sprinkles, bird seed etc.
Once you’ve added your confetti sew the rest of the heart shut.

I made the card using some paper and my Silhouette Cameo.
This little machine impressed me when I found out it could print then cut. Using the software the Cameo comes with, you can design something then decide which parts will be printed or die cut. You send the paper through your printer then through the Cameo. I tried it with this card and was happy with the results. One of the things I learned while using the Silhouette is to always click the second box on the top right with the black corners to see check your registration marks and to make sure what you are making is within the margins.

Next, I added some of my Dear Lizzy Ruffle Paper and some twine to keep it together.
