Felt Licitar Heart Tutorial

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was participating in a Heart swap.  DH is originally from Croatia, and they have the most delightful custom of giving loved ones Licitar hearts.  They are traditionally made of honey dough, but I decided to do a variation on it for the swap, and make them from felt. If you are interested, I have written a tutorial so you can make your own Licitar hearts! Here are the five I made for the swap, and also a photo of a couple of the Licitars I have received:





A more detailed method of using butcher paper for patterns/applique can be found HERE.  And here are  a few more photos of the finished hearts:
