Hi, I'm Cherish Flieder, designer of somethingtocherish.com. Today, I want to show you how you can make tissue paper mosaic hearts. So to begin I'm going to cut up some tissue paper in the shapes of little squares. These will become our tissue paper mosaics. The next thing we're going to do is actually glue down, in a heart shape the pattern that we're going to make our mosaic. And to do that I'm using Mod Podge with a flat brush and just keep it really nice and simple. I'm not going to do the whole thing at once. I'm actually already started here. I'm working down this one side. So basically I've got this heart shape that I've worked down, and you can even go over any of these mosaics with some more Mod Podge. When you get to the edge you're going to actually want to cut some of these in half to create a diagonal for the outside of the heart. This is a wonderful little craft that you can do with your children and kids can use it to make Valentine's day cards, or mother's day cards, and all kinds of different types of decorations for their rooms. So as you design your heart shaped mosaic tissue paper, go ahead and leave a little space between each of the pieces. And this is going to mimic the grout that you would normally see in a mosaic. As I continue working across the heart I want to be really conscious that I'm not putting two of the same color next to one another. This will create a nice variety and keep your heart very interesting. Now that we have all the pieces of our heart down I'm going to give the whole heart one more coat of Mod Podge and that will seal everything in place. I'm Cherish, thanks for joining me and learning how to make a tissue paper mosaic heart. Have fun cutting these out, making all kinds of different projects with these, and go live life to the fullest and make something you cherish.
