About once a month I visit the local garden centre and what I like most about it, is that they have this corner full of home decor items. I particularly love all the hearts they have. They come in different materials and sizes and when I saw this white wooden one, about 10" x 12", I knew it had endless possibilities.
Here's what I did with it:
1. Gather your supplies: the heart you want to alter, Doodlebug's Sweet Cakes line (patterned paper, twine, diecuts and cardstock stickers), jewels and mini jewels, ribbon and Shin-Dig alpha stickers. Furthermore some ink and your tools: trimmer, scissors, pencil, punches, dies & diecut machine, 2 nails and a hammer:
2. Place the heart on the paper you want for the background. Use a pencil to draw around the heart, cut it out and ink the edges.
3. Embellish with jewels:
4. Hammer 2 nails in the back of the heart and add twine.
5. Choose diecuts & stickers and punch out some figures to embellish the heart:
6. Adhere the paper to the heart (I used tacky tape), tie a ribbon to the heart so you can hang it on your wall and add the embellishments. I finished by adding a title. The Shin-Dig letters are just the perfect size!
7. Hang a photo on the twine, using two mini clothes pins. Make a little banner and hang in front of your photo, tie this twine also to the 2 nails on the back of the heart.
8. And you're done! Here's a close-up of the embellishments:
Hope you'll like it!
