Hearts Aflutter. . .

.
I got the idea for this project this week after seeing it on Ali Edwards blog.  It's such a cute, easy project and practically free!
.
Here's what you need:
- Frame (mine came from Target a few years ago for $2.50; I just knew I'd use it at some point!)
- Heart punch
- Scrapbook paper
- Adhesive dots (The ones I used are 1/4" x 1/16" thick)
.
.
Punch out hearts using a variety of patterned paper and line up on a sheet of background paper.
.
..
.
..
Attach hearts with adhesive dots and frame.  That's it!
.
.
The adhesive dots add a nice amount of depth, so make sure you use a frame with a double mat so that there is enough room for the hearts.
.
.
Isn't this the cutest little project?  I like how it works for Valentine's Day but doesn't scream Valentine's Day.  I also think this would look lovely in a little girls room or a nursery.  It would also be fun to make using other punches - maybe butterflies, leaves, or flowers.  I haven't hung this yet, but I think it might find a permanent home in my craft room.
.
I was having so much fun punching out hearts that I kept on punching and made Valentine's Day cards using the same technique.

  13. Hey Alissa! You should definitely try the heart wreath (you could probably make a cute spring themed one using the same concept!). Anyway, you should add your email address to your blogger profile! :)

  14. That is just darling. I can't imagine a better combination of patterns. One could do all creams and blues and have a whimsical beacy piece of art too. Great project.
