First, create your design on water-soluble paper. I did 2 dozen hearts in two different colors of pink. I have an inkjet printer which worked just fine. Cut them out carefully, leaving a little tag on the side for holding and pinning. You'll cut this off at the end.

|Sometimes one escapes. It happens.|
|Soap petals setting up. Note how we left a little space between the petals and the cardboard.|
After your soap petal hearts have set up, take them down and carefully cut the tabs off. Set them in a bowl or dish by your sink.
|All done and trimmed. Aren't they precious?|
Do you want the sheet of hearts in a .pdf? Leave a comment below, and I'll be happy to upload it.
