A Valentine's Frame Project {free download}

I have a fun Valentine's Day project for you today.

I've had this idea for awhile and look forward to exploring it further later on in the year as well.  There are so many possibilities with it!

This project involves a 16x20 print and a frame. You could also just take the print and spray adhesive it to a canvas the same size.

You will need the plain print for this project. The "Be Mine" print is for those who just want to frame something up quick!

They are in a png format. You can print these off at Costco or other printers.  Just remember when you are finishing your order to click the DO NOT AUTOCORRECT THE COLOR button!

To make the heart, you will use the technique found HERE that Martha Stewart uses to make tissue pom pom's only your pom pom's will be REALLY small. You will want your tissue paper to be 5-6" wide and about 10" long.  Cut a heart out of cardboard and glue the pom pom's on with hot glue. Attach the ribbon to the heart and then take the ribbon over the frame.
It is seriously cute in person! And takes so few things to put all together.  Isn't that the best?!:)

Hope your January is going smoothly. I will be back next week with a HUGE sale of extra and clearance prints from my shop! Think 50% off HUGE! (and many of them are the "I love you because" Prints!)
