The making of one, that is, in pictures…

9 Bijou tiles:

Add dots and a border (I’m using sticky notes to hold them together to make this step and the next easier):

And a string:

Tangle each tile and reassemble:

Add some extra shading:

Add my Valentine’s sentiment to my long-suffering husband of almost 18 years and “Voila”!

Cheers,

    Your ensemble is beautiful. Thanks for the tip about using post it notes in the ‘string’ phase.

      Thanks, Bette! I’ve tried tape in the past and stickies work so much better. 🙂
