I Heart U

OK so one of my favorite things that screams Valentine's Day and makes me miss being a kid again is conversation hearts. I have had these frames from the dollar aisle at target for a while and finally saw a craft at My Creative Departure that gave me a little creative inspiration of my own for those frames.

- 3 frames
- candy heart
- glue gun
- cardstock
- doily/ heart stencil

I started by doing a  dry run with each of my frames mapping out my I and U. For my heart I used a paper doily for my guide on the heart shape. Once I had it the way I wanted it I glued down my I and U to the glass with my hot glue gun. I put in some bubblegum pink cardstock in the frame to help the hearts pop off from the frame.

Next I glued the hearts to the doily.

Then I glued the doily to the frame and put in some bubblegum pink cardstock in the frame.

In the end it turned out really cute, was super easy, and inexpensive. All of my favorite things.....
