Valentine Decor

I found this frame at the dollar store and knew that I wanted to make some Valentines decor with it.

So I took off the backing
and gathered my supplies that I wanted to work with. K&Co Paper, Papertrey Ink Felt, Nestabilities scalloped heart die and misc ribbon from my stash.

I cut the paper to 6X6 (the opening is about 5.5 x 5.5) and added my hearts. But I did not like it...


So I grabbed the next size up die and some scrap white cardstock and cut more hearts... much better!


I glued the hearts in place, and used tape to adhere the paper to the frame, and stapled on the ribbon. This way it is easy to change out!


I think that I want to add the word "Love" to the bottom right of the frame. I just need to find the right letters or break out the Cricut to make them!
