Valentine Project

It's so fun making crafts to help decorate and celebrate each season and holiday.  Jen over at Tatertots & Jello inspired me with her XOXO Marble project.  So fun and cute!  If you haven't seen her blog, you should definitely go there right now!  She always has some really fun and affordable projects going on with lots of tutorials so you can do it yourself.  She is so crafty and talented and I LOVE reading her blog and getting fun ideas.

So, I was feeling a little lazy and wanted to do something easier than gluing marbles for the project.  I was at the craft store and found some cute, glittery chipboard letters and knew they were just what I was looking for.  I got two different scrapbook papers, got the chipboard letters, and went to Walmart to get some mini frames (they didn't have any black ones that were mini at the dollar store, otherwise I would have gotten some there). 

And voila! 

I love the way it turned out!  Now I have a fun and unique Valentine's Day decoration.  Thanks for the inspiration, Jen!

Way cute!! I love them. I'm feeling crafty. I can duplicate crafts but I can't think up my own ideas too often.
