Well, I have had a pot of coffee to myself today. Last night was a night from hell. Seriously! The twins were brought into the clinic yesterday to find out they both have "rip-roaring" ear infections :( My poor babies. They were both inconsolable last night. Being the nice and awesome wife I am, I spent the night downstairs on the couch rocking Grayson so the hubby could sleep in the room. Didn't really matter what I did, Grayson was just not feeling well and he was letting me know it!.
SO on and hour and half of sleep I must say today is really going much better then I had expected! Ive cleaned the house top to bottom, and even had time to get a little crafty thing in. Took around 20 minutes.
Here it is:
Cute Valentines Frame-that really could double as just an adorable all year round frame!
I started with the plain wood frame I found at Michaels.
Next, I picked out a piece of scrap fabric I had. I traced around the frame leaving about an inch extra around it so that I would have enough to fold over the frame to glue down.
I cut out the middle of the fabric piece and then went and glued the fabric to the back of the frame.
It was cute by itself-just the fabric covering it, but I decided to add an off white rose that I had.
I cut off the stem, and took the layers apart and glued them down separately to the frame.
This is how it's looking
Then I took some black felt and this frame didn't come with a glass piece so I just used the cardboard piece it came with and used it to support the felt in place.
This is what we have so far...
I had a foam red heart from a Valentine Kit I also got at Michaels. I added texture by cutting out a smaller white heart out of felt adding more color and contrast.
