Honeycomb Tutorial

Nothing makes me think of a Vintage Valentine than honeycomb paper. Honeycomb hearts are just the sweetest. Here is a tutorial on how to make one. They can be any size or color. You can use the same technique and make any shape of honeycomb. Just think of all the possibilities!
Tissue paper
Glue stick
Scissors, punch, or paper shape cutter

I used my Cuttlebug and my Spellbinder Nestabilities Hearts to cut the hearts out. You could hand cut them also. You need one cardstock heart and 9 tissue paper hearts. Crease the cardstock heart by folding it in half.

Glue the first tissue heart onto the cardstock heart.
I have marked the heart using A and B. You will NOT do this. I did it for demonstration purpose

Put a dot of glue where each A would be. Press a tissue heart to each one.
On top of that heart put a dot of glue where each B would be. Press another tissue heart to that.
Repeat this process alternating between A and B. Use 8 tissue hearts.

Cut the ninth heart in half. Glue fully onto right side. Add glue to left side and fold heart pressing together.
Unfold and you should have a honeycomb heart!
