You are not allowed to laugh at my stitching one of my New Years Resolutions is to learn proper embroidery stitches. If yours are worse than mine, which is hard to imagine or if you are just in a hurry you can substitute stitching with more beads or just leave the shapes plain.
1. Brown embroidery thread stitched lengthwise
2. Pale Yellow embroidery thread stitched in a zig zag pattern
3. Small bead felt glued
4. White embroidery thread in an S shape
5. Brown bead glued down
7. Smaller shape felt glued to bigger shape.
Allow these pieces to sit while you cut out the felt heart shape and a strip of felt to cover the perimeter approx 1/4″ inch wide by 9.5″ inches long.
Apply felt Glue to edge of heart shape.
Run Strip of felt along side and pin to hold.
Let everything sit for about an hour.
Glue chocolates into place, the easiest way to do this is to place a small amount of glue onto the tip of a pin and place the glue onto the heart.
Carefully put the chocolates into their spaces allow to dry for 30 minutes
Turn Clip over and hot glue clip to back
