FREE Hearts ’n Flowers Bouquet Project from Michaels!



Scope out this  Hearts ’n Flowers Bouquet Free Project from Michaels!  "Say "I love you" with everlasting flowers."
This looks to be a cute and easy project - would great Valentine's Day gift for the Grandparents and Aunts!

Of course, I will modify, so I can use up my stash.  I may change to a Turquoise glitter and paint, as I have paint, glitter and shred in turquoise on hand.  I will have to think about the container, I do not want to use a pot or a plain black container,  I do have some vases and Valentine themed coffee mugs in my stash.  I will  have to see if any will be right size and color.  I will want something lower, heavy and with a sturdy flat bottom that will not tip over easily with the height of the project.

My personal touch here, I will use small patterned scrap paper for the heart  and I am going to cut out pictures of the kids in heart shapes and decoupage them to the center of each heart.  The photos will be slightly smaller, so I will have a dual border of both the glitter and and the scrap paper.  Hmm, now I am thinking of reversing the border, having glitter next to the photo, and the scrap paper on the edges. And maybe use other colors on each of the hearts to coordinate with each photo. 

What do you think?  I am off to explore my stash and photos . . ,
