Rose Petal Heart Framed

This is just a simple inexpensive project that I made as part of my Valentine's Day decor.   




What you’ll need: 


Frame
Scrapbook paper (one piece) 
Cardstock (one piece)
Rose petals (Bought at the Dollar Tree.)
Glue (I used a clear tacky glue but a glue gun would work just as well.)


The only items I needed to purchase for this project were the rose petals and the frame both of which I found at the Dollar Tree making this project cost a total of 2.00. 



What to do:
1. Take a part your frame and discard the glass. We won’t be using it for this project. Trace the backing of the frame onto your scrapbook paper and cut it out. Adhere your scrapbook paper to the backing of the frame.
2. Draw a heart onto cardstock and cut it out. 

3. Begin to glue rose petals to the heart. Start on the edges of the heart with the pointed part of the petal pointing in towards the heart. 
4. Continue to the glue petals to the heart overlapping the hearts so none of the cardstock peeks through.
5. Once the heart is full of petals, apply a liberal amount of glue to the back of heart and glue it in the center of the scrapbook paper. Add the frame and you are finished! 


Cute, eh? Enjoy!
