Hi, all! I am SUPER excited for my post today! As soon as I saw the *NEW* My Valentine's stamp set from the Inspired By Stamping store, I just KNEW that I'd need to make a Valentine countdown frame with it! It was really a pretty quick project because the stamps do most of the work for you! I'll narrate how I made this project, then do a recap list at the end. Take a peek at my completed project before I take you step by step...
Isn't that just super fun?! I went with a traditional Valentine color scheme--black, red, white, and gold for shine and elegance. The first step in creating this project is to find a frame you want to use. I had one that was in serious need of an upgrade. It was more of a shadowbox type frame.
I'm not sure if you can tell or not, but there is a gold mat that was inside the frame with an oval opening. I added some patterned paper to fill in that gap. I then added three strips of ribbon across the frame to attach my tags.
The tags were super fun to make! I used washi tapes, red glittery hearts, glittery chipboard arrows, gold stickers, flowers, other miscellaneous embellishments, and the My Valentine's set for the tags themselves.
To attach the tags, I utilized hair clips. I just hot glued some flowers to the tops and then threaded them through the hole. You could also use tiny clothespins for this. Those were actually my first choice, but I couldn't find the ones I KNOW I have somewhere in my craft area. ;)
I am SO happy with how this project turned out! I hope you like it, too! I'd love for you to let me know your thoughts in the comments below! And now, like I stated above, here's a quick list of steps to make this project:
- Select frame. Add patterned paper and ribbon.
- Make tags using the My Valentine's set, flowers, and other desired embellishments.
- Make clips to hold tags in place temporarily by hot gluing flowers onto the tops of hair clips.
- Attach tags to frame.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends! That's all I have for you today, but I'll be back soon with more inspiration using fabulous products from the Inspired By Stamping online store. Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
