Love You Frame

I decided that I needed to make some Valentines Day Decor this year, and I saw this scrabble tile frame and I just had to make my own. My husband has had a scrabble game since before we were married, and I have never seen him play it. Now I am so glad we never got rid of it! I was afraid to show him, wondering if he wouldn't appreciate me using his game this way... but he didn't even realize at first that they were his game pieces :) I promised him that the pieces would be easy to take off if he wanted to play his game, since I just put them on with glue dots.

The heart background is from the Love Impressions Designer Series Paper, and the burlap flower was cut using the table settings die. I cut out 2 flowers, and cut a couple spirals off of one of them (to make the smaller flower), and then I added the extra spirals to the second flower to make it bigger. I then glued the Vintage Flower Adornment inside the biggest one. I love the way it looks!

One other thing I did, was to sand down the edges of the frame. I used the sanding blocks for this, and then I sponged some Crumb Cake ink onto the wood that showed through. I actually wished I had the distressing kit for this but I will try it next time.

Come back tomorrow to see the Valentines we made for my boy's classes!
