1. Begin by making the heart shaped wire frame using the thicker wire – take a 40cm long length of wire and make a loop in the centre, bend both sides up to make the heart shape and join them together with another wire wrapped loop.
2. Now attach the buttons and beads on with the 0.4 mm wire.
3. Finally tie a loop in the organza ribbon before you start to weave it through the buttons with a big eye needle. To finish just tie a pretty bow.
