It was actually quite simple; just a little bit time consuming since I can be a perfectionist. The first thing I did was cut out hearts.
You can use basic tools to do this such a scissors or a heart puncher. Or you can take the route I did and use a Cricut machine (if you own one; which, I recommend!). I cut out a random number of hearts that I thought fit the frame well -- 49. I was just going to use 31 for how many days there are in the months but it looked weird in the 10x10 frame I have.
So, after your hearts are all cut, then you take the glue stick and glue the hearts on a piece of white paper (aka the backdrop). I suppose you can use any color, but I think the white looks nice.
Ah, sorry for the glare. I didn't notice that when it was on the camera.
I did my own version of their artwork. So, the two colored brown hearts (why brown? I wanted to tie together the colors and bring out the brown in our canvas we have in the kitchen) represents when we got married on 01/ 25 so the 1st heart and 25th heart are colored. It may not be as perfect as theirs, but I like it and think I got a steal of a bargain.
2 12x12 cardstock white paper $1.58
1 12x12 colored paper $.79
1 glue $3.00
1 frame $8.99
Total price for this craft project: $14.36 compared to the whopping $79 and $190 frames she has going for sale. I already had the glue, paper, and cricut machine at the house, so this project really only cost me $8.99
