Here I used the same concept on a heart. Below is the back of the heart showing how I glued the scroll border around the edge. On a 2 3/4" high heart one tree did a little over half the heart. You do need to do a little more snipping of the border to go around the curves, but as you look at the finished heart. . it turns out great from the front and you do not notice the stop and start.
Thank You B
