I made some specimen using the heart picks from the dollar store. I used my craft knife to cut them in half. If I were to do it again, I would have used a bigger knife. I didn't want the background to be completely the same, so I did white fabric for the pink hearts and a pink striped fabric for the red glittery hearts.
Don't mind the lines in the white fabric. I could not get them out! I ironed it like 5 times and they were still there!
