I’m in love with May Arts Ribbon’s new releases.  They make me so happy that I had to have my own personal party for them.

Today I wanted to highlight the new puffy blinged out adhesive backed hearts.  These are so cool and very easy to work with.  The bonus with these is that it comes already ready to stick onto your projects.  The adhesive on these are great and they don’t peel away from the hearts so you can stick them onto many surfaces like I did here.

Stick them to paper to make a card or tag.

Stick them on a straw for a stylish drink.

You can also stick them onto themselves to make a cool display like this mobile.

Here’s a quick tutorial to show you how to make your own hanging hearts mobile.

First you’re going to use a jewelry plier to cut pieces of May Arts Ribbon’s new Diamond Chain for your string.  I just love the Diamond chain, it’s so fabulous.

Then wrap a wire around the first link in the chain.

After this you can shape your wire into any shape you desire.  I decided to make mines a hanger shape but a circle would be equally cool.

All that is left now is to add on your hearts.  For this step I cut the hearts in sets of two and peeled off the backing so I could sandwich the chain in between them.

The end result is a totally blinged out ornament you can hang.

    Great idea to make a mobile out of the hearts. Marking the straws is a pretty way to designate which glass is yours. Love the ideas.
