I have been staying busy creating all sorts of little bits and baubles for Valentine's Day....especially ones involving pictures of loved ones. This sweet couple are my grandparents....as they were both newly engaged. I thought I would share a simple little tutorial on creating with a few simple items.
You will need:
heart picture foam frame (I purchased mine from a Dollar store)
This is what the foam frame looked like to begin with....kinda blah right?! I immediately tore off the backside cardboard and removed the photo and the trims on top. Next layer the topside with glue...now that you have a nice layer of glue over the topside sprinkle on your glitter and shake off excess. I repeated this step about 3 times until I achieved the layered look I wanted.
Your frame will now look like this. I then used a circle punch to cut out a photo and glued in on the backside so that the picture shown through. Next add your various elements....trims, embellishments, etc. I didn't stop there...I wanted the backside covered so I cut out a vintage ledger paper heart to cover the backside and some seam binding as a way to hang the heart. These hearts are so much fun to make and you can personalize each one to give as gifts. These are beautiful hung around your home.
