this one requires patience. admitedly it took me about 20 min to figure out because i kept jumping ahead thinking i knew what the next step was. it may not be what you think. follow the directions well.

Martha has also offered these lovely little alternatives to the standard white doilies

I always wanted a little girl so we could have mini tea parties, and pink everything. believe it or not we have NEVER done that. so to make up for lost time i have arrange a mini valentines tea for my daughter, and a real tea for their moms. (oh what a pink + frilly day this will be) since i dont have pink tissue on hand i used pink magazine pages….and a few pink fabric scraps.

a few notes: when using magazine pages for the doilies, cut them square first. to create a circle of eight hearts i had to fold my square in four, then holding the folded edge towards me fold into a triangle TWICE. martha says once when using a napkin, but that only gave me four hearts with a standard piece of paper.
