So, the other day I promised a looksy at a couple of things I've been working on for Valentine's Day decor in my home. This first item is actually a recycled piece of packaging from some picture frames I bought a year ago in the Target Dollar Spot. I looked at the package and said to my mom (she was over playing with the Cricut - and she's hooked!!) "I can totally make something with this!" So, here is what I came up with:
I covered the inside with some scraps of paper, cut out 2 Eiffel Tower images from French Manor and covered with glossy accents for shine, then cut out 'je t'aime' (French for I love you) from Holiday Cakes and welded the letters with Design Studio. Then added some super fun zebra print fur ribbon trim I found at Hobby Lobby, the attached a piece of ribbon for hanging. All of this was made from stuff in my stash - so I didn't spend any extra $$ on it!
The second item I have to show you is one of the frames that came from the above package (there were 3 in it), and I just sat down and played with different techniques. Here is the result:
**About the flowers, these are made from another recycled material that I never would have thought of using before. Its a technique I learned from a very talented lady who runs her own studio! If you would like to know what that material is, give me a guess - and let me know if you would like a tutorial on the fabulous flowers!!! I'll post a tutorial if anyone out there wants to know more!**
See ya'll soon!!
