--- Using a Cricut ---
I used Sure Cuts A Lot software (You can purchase the software here
) to cut out my heart shapes on a Cricut. It even cut out the hole punches for me! To use my template for 8.5" x 11" sheets, please go here
to download my 'sure cuts a lot' heart template. You could alternatively pick any heart shape on your favorite cartridge, or any shape for that matter.
--- Without a Cricut ---
If you are not using a Cricut, here
is my heart stencil with hole punch marks. Transfer the heart shape and the holes onto heavier paper, so you can use it the stencil again and again!
Once you've made your stencil, trace the stencil onto your paper or fabric that you're using, and gather your groomsmen and bridesmaids to help cut them out and hole punch.
