CIY Staff Tips:

    • Before starting, protect all work surfaces and clothing.
    • Acrylic Paints are permanent when dry. Wipe up any paint spills when still wet.
    • Plan your design before starting – all hearts? Hearts and diamonds? Mix and match all 3 shapes?
    • You will need 18 shapes total – 2 of each shape in your arrangement (3 rows of 3).
