DIY Personalized Heart Artwork

It usually costs an arm and leg to get anything custom made and personalized. I mean, is it really that expensive to add on 2 initials?! This project actually came about while I was brainstorming for another project, which had everything to do with hearts and nothing to do with frames and initials.

I actually visualized several versions of how this artwork might work but in the end, I chose this version. Now completed, I’m happy to share!

Steps: 1. Place letter stickers onto the center of the paper to be framed 2. Cut out a heart (using lace ribbon) that’s big enough to cover the initials 3. Put a tiny piece of double sided tape onto the center of the heart and tape it over the initials 4. Frame and send over to your lover!

Have fun trying out this project!
