Valentine Hearts

Today I am sharing these cute Valentine Hearts. I love creating simple art, and these  Valentine Hearts were perfect for some Valentine Art!
I found these cute little hearts at hobby lobby last week and had to buy them. Aren't they cute? Little did I know that all the valentine crafts are on sale 50% this week. Wish I would have waited...oh well. Full price for a box of them was $3.99. Not too bad. Here's a teaser and little tutorial...
First off, I found a frame I wanted to use. Remember this frame from November? 

I love it, I want to leave the vinyl on it for now...I know its only vinyl but I really like it and actually have it in my bedroom even though Thanksgiving has long since passed...I like the message:) (I know I am lame!). Anyways, I love the frame and knew I wanted to use it again. Got my supplies: hearts, white cardstock, and handy dandy glue gun.

I cut the cardstock to fit the frame opening. Then I organized the hearts in a trial run layout and made sure they would fit.
Cue glue gun...
Done in like 5 minutes and I love it! Don't you just love these Valentine Hearts?
I think it turned out pretty darn cute. :)

  5. Thanks so much for the sweet comments! I got the frame at tj maxx this past September. I have seen similar ones at hobby lobby. They are just more shiny and I think made of plastic. They always seem to run a 50% off sale though which is nice.

  14. I love this because I like symmetry. I'm a dork too :) I like the contrast between the ornate frame and the modern shiny and mat hearts.

  16. I just went on the Hobby Lobby website and they don't have these hearts. I'm going to use yours as inspiration and see what I can find at Micheals.
