I saw something like this on Pinterest and was inspired to make my own version for my daughter and son-in-law.
I just Googled the locations on Google maps and printed them. I die cut the maps using heart dies and then matted them onto red cardstock cut from scalloped heart dies (Spellbinders).
I measured the glass from the frame I used and made a Photoshop document that size. I determined the center and the placement of the hearts, then typed the info and centered “Happily Ever After” on the bottom. I cut thin poster board the size of my frame and printed directly onto it. I have a Canon MP640 printer and had no problem at all. It just takes a very long time to dry and will smudge if you don’t let it sit. Don’t ask me how I know this. I let it sit for about half and hour and then used my heat gun to be sure it was really dry the second time around. ;) I then just had to adhere the hearts in the appropriate places and it was finished.
Here it is hanging on the wall.
Hope you all have a fabulous Valentine’s Day with your loved ones. Valentine’s Day is a family affair at our house. I always make a really nice dinner and set the table all fancy and make my husbands favorite cake in a heart shaped pan. It’s a day everyone looks forward to and I cherish the memories that are made.
Thanks for stopping by!
