If you follow me on Instagram (@jdeares), you may have gotten a sneak peak of this project over the weekend. I submitted a pic of it for A Night Owl blog’s #ANOweekend project since this weekend’s theme was handmade. Check out A Night Owl’s Instagram section if you’re not familiar with the project – there’s a new theme each weekend, and it’s always a lot of fun!
- Scrapbook paper (I got this key paper on clearance at Michael’s in a pack of 5 sheets for $.75)
- Ribbon (also from Michael’s – it was $.59)
You can probably guess my basic process just from looking at it, but here’s what I did – I searched online for a heart shape, then just copied it into a Word doc. I made three different sizes of hearts, then printed it out on the cardstock. I glued them onto the scrapbook paper and cut out the hearts. I could have easily fit all 3 hearts onto 1 piece of the scrapbook paper, but ended up using 2 since my paper had gotten kind of crinkled at the bottom. I used the end of my scissors to poke small holes at the top and bottom of each heart, then stuck the ribbon through it. Then I just tied a bow at the top to finish it up.
