  2. Download, print and cut out the heart template. Center it on the disc. Hold in place by securing the paper to the disc with a few thumbtacks. Trace the edge with a line of glue. Add one sequin at a time using the Sticky Micro Stix. These are available online or at local hobby shop and make this part go quickly and easily. If you don't have one, use a toothpick with a dab of glue on the end to pick up the sequin and position it.

  3. Remove the thumbtacks and carefully remove the paper template. Working in a concentric manner from the outside in, add a line of glue and then the add the sequins. Continue until the heart is filled.

  4. Add a line of glue around the perimeter of the circle and add the pink sequins. Add random dots of glue and place pink sequins between the red sequined heart and the pink sequined circle.

  5. Cut the ribbon to 33 inches. Make sure to cut the ribbon on an angle on both edges to prevent fraying. Add dots of glue along the side of the disc. Starting at the bottom (the side where the point of the heart faces), position the ribbon in place, adding more glue as you may require.
     
  6. For the large tassel, cut one foot of Vanna's Glamour® yarn. Thread the needle. Put it down. There is no need to make a knot at the end. Now take a book the length of which will be the size of you tassel.  My book was a 5" x 7" sketchbook. Holding both the Vanna's Glamour® and Premier Spangle yarn in your hand and wrap the yarn 20 times around the book. The more yarn you wrap, the bigger the tassel! Take your threaded needle under the top of the wrapping. Pull tight and knot at the top. Take your scissors and cut the yarn at the bottom. Now take another 12" of Vanna's Glamour® yarn and again thread your needle. Hold the long end down with your thumb so it blends in with the rest of the tassel. With the needle end, wrap the yarn several times about an 1" from the top. The yarn will poof like a ball. Use your needle to weave the tail in and out of the bit you just wrapped to secure it. Trim excess. Trim your tassel so the bottom is even.

  7. Trim back the edges of the knot you made at the top of your tassle. Add a dot of glue at the top of the tassle.  Attach tassle to the bottom of the disc with two pins.  Once the glue has set, you could remove the pins or leave them in like I did for an extra bit of sparkle.
     
  8. Cut a 12" piece of 1/4" satin ribbon. Form it into a circle.  Glue together the edges. Add a dot of glue at the top of the disc and attach the circle of ribbon. Secure in place with two pins.
