Step 1

Aluminum flashing (any hardware store)
Serrated edge scissors
Glaze Coat (2 part epoxy resin)
18 gage wire
Flat plastic (top of a takeout container will work)
Aleene's Tacky Glue
Jewelry pieces
E-6000 Glue
Needle nose pliers
Book pages or music sheets
Latex gloves, plastic cups and stir sticks
Chain to hang your hearts (www.ChainGallery.com)

Step 2

Cut 3/8" wide strips of aluminum flashing with serrated edge scissors
(I got serrated scissors in the kitchen department at the dollar store)
Bend into a heart shape
Glue the edges together with E-6000 and then clamp with a clothespin until dry
Trace the metal heart on a thin sheet of clear plastic
*I use the tops of takeout containers
Cut out and glue the metal heart to the plastic using Aleene's Tacky Glue
Add more glue around the outside edges so that it's air tight

Step 3

When dry, cut out book page hearts and fill with beads and jewelry pieces
Mix equal parts of Glaze Coat and stir for a few minutes
Fill the hearts and pop the bubbles with a long arm lighter
Let dry overnight in an unoccupied part of the house or outside under a box
Create "S" hooks with heavy gage wire and glue on the back with E-6000
When dry, hang from a chain
