Valentines Heart

I have been hoping to make this for a while but I finally had the deadly combination of time, materials and ambition today!

Materials needed:
newspaper cut into strips (the classifieds section works the best)
Mod Podge
red contruction paper
foam brush
glue gun
black ribbon with white dots

I wanted a piece of styrofoam that was heart shaped and about the size of a box of candy.  I wasn't able to find what I wanted so I just made my own.  Cut a heart shape out of styrofoam.

Then I just applied Mod Podge on the styrofoam and started layering my newspaper strips in complete randomness. (not really a word... so what?)  Then apply a coat of Mod Podge over the newspaper.

  Allow to dry.  Make red flowers out of construction paper.

Glue the roses onto the center of the heart.  Next add a little ribbon around the side of the foam heart.  Glue a loop of ribbon on top.
