You can make this! I have used crinkly gold paper to cover the cardboard heart, then added a cut out of St. Francis, my favorite Saint. The heart is further embellished by parts of a Dresden star, a bird charm, a red glass heart, a red & copper glass tassel and glitter glue for outlining. The other side of my ornament is an exact duplicate of the side you are seeing. I only wished that I had had more animal charms for this piece, as I wanted to fill St. Francis's arms! Spray the finished work with a couple of coats of polyurethane.
Almost all the "makings" were purchased from Silver Crow Creations, my favorite online purveyor of interesting, fun dodads!.
