My friend Aly had a really fun idea. She made this adorable printable and decided to share it with some blogging friends to see what we would come up with. We will all be sharing our different ideas using the same printable. If you want one of your own you can get it here.
I printed off the adorable Valentine printable and gathered my supplies. Of course, I’m using things I already had on hand. I like to gather more supplies than I’ll actually use to give me plenty of ideas to play around with.
For some reason Valentine’s Day and doilies go hand in hand to me. Maybe it’s all those doily and construction paper Valentines I made for my classmates in grade school. I’m pretty sure that last sentence just gave away my age. Anyway, I started by cutting out the center of the doily.
Then I decided how I wanted the printable placed inside the doily, traced around the doily, and cut the printable out.
I used a tape runner to add adhesive to the back of the printable and doily and placed them on the background paper.
Then I cut off the excess doily so it would fit inside the frame.
Now it was time to add the embellishments. Sometimes I like a little and sometimes I like a lot. This time I decided to go pretty simple to let the printable be the main focus.
Now that I’ve finished this maybe it will motivate me to get my mantel decorated for Valentine’s Day. I also love that this cute project cost me $0.
