Hi there! Are you watching the Super Bowl today? Things in my neck of the wood are all pro Eagles. I must say I am not particularly an Eagles fan. I do not plan on watching the game but will probably tune into the Half-Time Show.
My project share today is a vintage heart I made for a swap. I free cut the heart shape from a cardboard shipping box. Both sides were then covered with paper from K&Co. The edges were inked and distressed. I then covered the side edges with a flatback pink pearl trim. A small ruffled fabric trim outlines the heart shape. Next, lace trim, a doily, a charm, fabric rosettes and vintage buttons were added. On the right side, I placed a photo of a young girl and inked/distressed the edges. Tea-stained twill from Melissa Phillips was then tied around the heart.
On the back of the heart, I placed a braided trim for hanging accented with two vintage buttons and hemp bows. I saw this idea on You Tube as an alternate way to hand something but I don't remember whose channel it was.
This heart came together quite easily. It isn't very big--probably about 6 inches wide. I meant to measure it before I mailed it.
Thank you so much for taking time to stop by my blog and for the kind comments you leave. I appreciate each one. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
