Cover the workpiece with PVA glue, glue the heart from the decoupage map, carefully aligning the edges.

Tip: instead of a card, you can use scrapbooking paper or decontamination napkins. Allow the product to dry, cut off the edges of the decoupage card that extend beyond the edges of the workpiece. Choose a suitable lace or braid. Stick them better with a glue gun, applying a glue layer with a narrow strip along the outlined contour. Trim excess lace over the edgesproducts. Stick a miniature bouquet of roses on a drop of hot glue; the bouquet can be easily replaced with a beautiful large bead, a button with an ornament or a piece of jewelry. A neat bow of ribbon is also suitable. Try to combine the ornament of the heart and the bouquet: these may not be necessarily roses, but, for example, forget-me-nots or field flowers. On the back of the product, glue the magnet toattachment to the refrigerator or hood. In case of use of an ornament as a postcard, the reverse side should be pasted with white paper with congratulations and wishes printed on it.
