Good morning! Michele here with a Valentine shadow box frame! This black shadow box frame was from IKEA (pop the glass out) and use some Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® into my project! I love decorating for the holidays and using stuff in my stash to do it!
A few fun textural elements, a few ink splatters and you’ve got yourself a cute decorative piece!
Here’s a quick little tutorial on my creative process. I absolutely love this Girlie Grunge Twine in pink….can you tell? 😉 I cut a rectangle out of 3D Foam Creative Sheets using a die….which later I cut down to a smaller size with scissors. (Sometimes my creative journey takes me in a whole new direction! Anyone else have that problem?)
I wrapped my rectangle with the twine…which was super easy because it is sticky on both sides!
While that was drying, I used another piece of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets to cut some letters. I wanted the word, love.
I peeled the tops of the letters and sprinkled them with black glitter.
After playing around a bit inside the frame, I came to the conclusion that no matter how many times I rearranged my letters, they weren’t all going to fit. So I replaced the O with a little metal heart. All of this was again adhered using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.
I wanted to be sure that it popped a bit, so I had a small white doily in my stash, I used the Dual Tip Glue pen on the other side. Just a thin layer and then I sprinkled black glitter to match my letters. I used Crafty Foam Tape to adhere to my frame.
A few things to mention that I didn’t take pics of….I used striped paper to the back of the picture frame. I splattered white and black paint and added a few sequins to tie it all together. Here is a close up of it resting on my mantle 🙂
And my Valentine mantle in its entirety!
Thank you all so much for stopping by today!
