Hearts in a shadow box.....


I saw this idea on a blog and although I believe I bookmarked it, sadly I cannot find it. So, thank you somebody. I have had this shadow box for a long time - just sitting on a shelf. One day while just reading blogs, a woman had cut out lots of hearts and was was folding them and attaching them to a bag. So in the spirit of using up "stuff" I already have, I punched out a bunch of hearts with a heart punch that was still in the box. Because glue was involved I lined the box with card stock (from the shelf of paper).
The hearts were folded in half to create a little dimension and glued in place.


I will display this for Valentine's Day and then perhaps make another display for Mother's Day.


As Martha would say, "It's a good thing!" And I didn't go to the store!

Yes...Hearts for Valentines...always a Good Thing! I saw a pattern for felted hearts that were kind of puffy. They would be cute as well. I love the idea of using what you have...even if it means getting out the glue gun...I might have taken the double sided tape shortcut. Thanks for stopping by CITexasGal for SuKnitWitty's Knitting Post. When I finally finish something and get a chance to do the Bind Off Stitch...I'll be sure and give you a ShoutOut...don't hold your breath, tho...LOL!!!

What a clever project! Folding the hearts makes them more interesting than if they were flat. You can really learn a lot from blogs!
