- some cardboard-mine is the back of a picture frame
- a t-shirt-I used a men's XXXL but a smaller size will work. Half of the shirt I used went to Aubrey's hero cape
- hot glue
- Ribbon for the top
- Fabric and beads for rosettes (my fabric is a cloth diaper, I bought the wrong kind to make burp cloths)
Start by cutting a heart out of your cardboardCut out a ton of squares from your fabric. I used pretty much what was left of the shirt. You want them around the same size but they don't have to be perfect. Mine were about 1 1/2 inch squares.
Find the center of your square and fold it diagonal. Pinch the your square together so you end up with something like the picture below.
Add a drop of hot glue and and stick the pointy part of your square in it. Keep adding fabric squares as close as you want all the way around your heart. The fabric helps hold the one next to it up.
