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.

so cute! I've made the butterfly one, but the hearts are adorable and the card idea is awesome!

Anna said...

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! :)

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.

Polly@MakeMineBeautiful said...

Uh....that's supposed to say "beachy".
