I loved how they all coordinated–

I ended up making a bunch of hearts on my silhouette cameo studio (you can just use a heart punch or some scissors.) heart cut outs with a silhouette The frame I have is 12×12…so I had a leftover piece of peel and stick vinyl that I used for my backdrop. Laid over my cutout and marked where each heart was…
valentines wall art with hearts and started hot gluing them in place. cover each mark with ribbon So I get this far. and then i totally wished I would have done a  gorgeous patchwork ribbon pillow or something! so cute! love how this looks! ribbon weaved but I persevere on and lay over the heart paper again and make sure it all lines up! lay cutouts over heart

spray painted my frame red….
