A while back I saw this idea on Pinterest
and thought it would be a perfect Valentine’s gift for my husband, since we met, we wed and we had kids in 3 different places. I love projects that have sentimental meaning to it why this was so great. So I had gathered maps over the year and a frame and then got busy.
I began by using a cookie cutter as a stencil to cut out my hearts from the maps. I then spray painted a gold frame that I had found a tjmaxx a while back.
I was having a hard time finding paper that would fill the entire space of the frame with out having to use multiple pieces, so I had to figure something else out. Instead I decided to mod podge old book pages on the frame cardboard and then painted over it (just like the love sign that I showed you last week) with a teal blue this time. Once the paint dried I measured out where I wanted the hearts and then glued them on. In the original they then wrote under each map: we met, we wed, we had kids, but I loved the simplicity of it without. And the bottom line is we know why each of those maps are significant.
I love how it turned out. It was a perfect Valentine’s gift to remember all the places we have been together.
Did you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day? How did you celebrate? Did you make any fun projects? If you did post them on our facebook page, we would love to see them.
