I love to decorate for most 'seasons' of the year and I get highly depressed when Christmas decorations have to come down- so I was glad to get out what few Valentine things we have!
I thought this was a fun and Easy Peasy (as my niece would say) way to use up some printed scrapbook paper I just had to have (an addiction I'm slowly working myself out of.)
Then I dug in my idea folder and found a way to use 5 sheets of scrapbook paper or 1 sheet and 4 smaller pieces of paper!
THE SIMPLE HOW TO
Supplies Needed: 1 12x12 sheet for background
4 other papers that coordinated with theme- This one was LOVE!!!!
The barn wood background paper worked perfect for our home- and the other papers
work well with it. Our home does not lend itself to pinks- so the darker reds helped!
I simply measured about 4.5 inches wide by 5 inches tall for each letter- making the 'O'
special by cutting a heart in the center. Then using a brown ink pad I inked the edges,
centered them, taped them to the paper, then taped onto a sturdy piece of
board to prop up as new decoration. Voila - Love is in the air ♥
Hope you or your kids could enjoy something like this! This is a great way to use up scraps- and would be sweet to make small versions of this on postcards or note cards for valentines!
