Valentine Hangings

I needed to make some wall art for Valentines.   I loved the Silhouette studio Valentine subway art design, so I had to use it.  I also loved the free rolled rose design, it added that perfect touch to my frame.

   I got the frame from Walmart for $3.   The back was attached on one side, so I took my razor knife and sliced it away.   Then I hot glued the glass onto the frame.   I cut out the subway design and then using transfer tape, I centered up the image and added to the frame.   I cut out the roses next and rolled them.    I added those to frame using hot glue as well, so I didn't have to hold the roses while waiting for the glue to dry.   I hot glued ribbon on the back of the frame and tied a bow at the top to add a little more character to the hanging.

Buckets of love

I saw these $1 buckets at Walmart and had to have them.   I added a white vinyl heart and then cut their names in the center of a red viny heart and layered it.    I cut the tags and ran them through my latest fun toy, my big shot, to emboss it.   I cut the love you saying out of vinyl, because when I tried it with paper it kept tearing letters off of it.   I also added a few mustache cutouts to the suckers, just to add a little dress up fun to the treats!

This is the Valentine's day helper.   She decided to wrap herself since I wouldn't allow her to dump the buckets over, hehe.
