XOXO Valentine Project Tutorial

 I love this project I found while surfing the blogs. For the complete & original post scroll to the bottom of this post - Enjoy :)

 This was fun, easy & cheap to do. I love that kind of project. I just wish I had someone to take better pictures, oh wait I do. He says he will..... I will update the photos if he ever does. Mine come out looking to orange in the photos. They do look better in person.

Here’s a cute little craft to bring a little Valentine happiness to your home! (I repurposed my Dollar Tree frames from my “Fall” grouping, except for one frame that I scrounged up here).
And the great thing is that you can take out the Valentine XOXO and store them, and then use the Dollar Tree frames again for a different project.
I also used a large black frame that I had and made a large heart for my mantle.
I was going to decoupage the frame, but discovered that I only have the shiny Mod Podge, so I will do that later.
I love that it is a very inexpensive project. I used frames I already had, plus one bag of floral marbles ($1.50), scrapbbook paper I already had and E6000.
This is what I did:
Took the pictures out of my Dollar Tree frames and traced the outline on my scrapbook paper. Found a cup that was the right size for the O’s and traced around it on two of the papers. Found the center on the other two papers and used a ruler to make an X.
Then I put a followed the outline on the X’s and O’s with a line of E6000 craft glue. I then put a line of marbles on the glue. Then I made another line on each of the X’s and O’s and put another line of marbles. And let them sit overnight to dry.
For the large heart, I cut out the scrapbook paper to fit inside the heart. Then I cut out another sheet of paper the same size using leftover paper (you will not keep this part so you could use plain copy paper). I folded that extra paper in half and then cut out a heart that was a little smaller than the paper. Then I traced that heart on the paper that goes inside the frame — using pencil. After that I put a bunch of the E6000 inside the heart outline and then filled it in with marbles. And I let it sit overnight to dry.
The next day I put the paper inside of the frames. The glass that comes with the frames I put behind the paper with the marbles on it. This way I won’t lose the glass if I want to use it again with the frame for another project.
I like the size of the glass marbles and the way they sparkle in the sun!
