Love hearts shadowbox frame

I had a completely different idea for this frame when I began. I initially was going to paint the inside a solid color and cut out little butterflies from patterned paper. As you can see I strayed pretty far. I found the pretty red and white background in my paper box and decided to get a jump start on a valentines craft. Granted this will probably remain hung up in my craft room well past that day. Glittery hearts never get old. Oh did I mention I got to use my snazzy new Cricut for this project!?! Best Christmas present ever! Thanks pops ;)

Mod podge
Heart shaped paper punch, cricut, or just freehand it.
Sponge brush
Shadowbox frame
Backdrop paper
Newspaper to contain the glitter
*I used red acrylic paint to paint my frame

Step 1: If you are going to paint your frame do so first and let dry for 24 hrs before continuing.

Step 2: Place your backdrop paper inside and glue in place.

Step 3: Cut out your heart shape and apply a generous layer of mod podge. Now sprinkle your glitter onto the heart. Let sit for about 10 minutes then shake off the excess.

Step 4: Put a small amount of mod podge onto the back of the hearts and position them to your liking.

Now just hang it on your wall and feel the love!

Happy Crafting
