What is love?
Howard Jones anyone? Hmm… I just did a great job dating myself with that reference. I will tell you that I love this project I’m going to share today.
Since this upcoming holiday is all about the heart, I made one of my own. I started with these two wooden pieces…
They measure about two inches in length. When they are glued together in a particular way…
Inspiration struck me as I was looking through my hoard prized collection of papers. I found a doubled sided sheet that was aptly named Sweet Romance. I took another tear shaped piece of wood and traced the paper and cut it.
I flipped the paper over and repeated the process. I used Mod Podge to glue down the papers.
I trimmed and sanded down the papers so the edges were smooth. I gave it another coat of Mod Podge. While that was drying, I went through my stash of antique keys. Don’t keys and hearts just naturally go together? Unfortunately, mine aren’t really antique, and therefore too shiny for my heart.
I used black StazOn ink and a paper towel to lightly sponge over and age the key.
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic covered both parts of the heart, and as it was drying, I added the key to one side.
Is it love? I think so! I can see it on a coat lapel as a pin. It says Valentine’s Day–but could be worn beyond that don’t you think?
