The DIY project is a picture for our baby girl's room. The idea that I found from Pinterest was to cut out hearts from baby shower cards, put them on to card stock or some other kind of paper and frame it for the baby's room. You can find the original idea here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/55169164159568078/. Instead of just doing cards from my baby shower, I decided to add my own twist to this project. I cut out hearts from the gift bags that the presents came in.
|One of the gift bags before I cut hearts from it.|
|I drew the size heart I wanted on a bag and used it as the template for me to trace the rest of the hearts.|
|I wrote on the back of the heart.|
|Once I put the heart on the construction paper (the color matches the nursery so I went with it), I wrote the name on the back of the paper. You won't see this because it will be in a frame.|
|All my hearts in a nice stack.|
|My sticker maker! You can find these at any craft store.|

|Placed hearts! Rows of 5 hearts is how I did this.|
|Frame already painted. Forgot to take a picture of the frame before painting.|
|I got this paint from Wal-Mart. I got a big bottle, but a small one should be fine.|
I know not everyone is crafty, and hey we all have things we enjoy doing, being crafty is something I enjoy. If you are crafty, let me know if this something you might plan to do. Let me know if this something you already have done. If you aren't crafty and are thinking this would be something you want done for you, click on my contact me tab at the top. As I was doing this project, I thought this could be cool to do for those that aren't crafty, yet would still want something like this for their nursery or for their home. The original Pinterest post said this could also be done with wedding cards. And since I did mine with baby shower gift bags, you could do this with wedding shower gift bags. Graduation season is coming up, you could also do something like this with graduation cards/graduation present gift bags. You could also do this with a special birthday (1st birthday, 13th birthday, 16th birthday, 18th birthday). Definitely let me know what you think of this and feel free to share this post!
