well, luckily this craft isn't seasonal. In fact, it won't be coming down after Valentines Day!
I guess it wasn't really made for any occasion, but to serve as a little, lovely reminder (we can always use some of those...) :)
Especially with my husband being a person who thrives on verbal affirmation, this is a great way to brighten up his day (and it's always fun to write on glass!)
So here's what I needed (I made a lot of changes along the way until I found colours that felt right in our kitchen). I guess my mom was right when she said I can't make up my mind! :)
I found a cheap document frame at the dollar store, some silvery-white textured scrapbook paper, decorative paper, gold sparkle letter stickers & a heart punch at Michaels.
the punch was on clearance (woo hoo!!)
I punched out a heart (I originally wanted to use the turquoise paper, but opted for a lighter green... this didn't last long either). Here I used the scrap paper as a (ghetto) straight edge for my letters (I made sure it measured 6 cm across at every point), then taped them in place.
then I carefully put the lettering (the 'y' was saved for last;
the long stick on the 'y' made it difficult with the paper).
after, I realized that I wanted to change the colour of the heart (again!?!?) I know...
Sooo.... I used a paint chip from Martha Stewart's collection called 'Lagoon'. No.more.punching.new.hearts.
Now trips to the can will be much more enjoyable!
