I have been receiving many requests on how I made the Love Map.
So here is a quick run down.
This is the frame that I started with.
(smaller version of this tut)
I had a old frame & sanded it back
I really wanted to paint it white, but didn't have any at home & I really HAD to make this right away.
So I actually used Zac's paint.
I used some paper towel and rubbed it back to give it a little texture.
I was going to use the insert that comes with the frame, but the shape was wrong, so i decided to the use the white backing paper that comes with the frame. (image below) Just make sure the picture doesn't show through.
I found my 3 pages & ripped them out, then on another map or plain paper. I freehand stretched one half of a love heart.
Cut it out
Folded, traced & cut around the heart
With the maps I intended on using I placed the heart over the exact spot where "we met". I tried to place it in the centre of the heart.
I traced & cut in the inside of the pen line.
Pasted all three hearts on the white paper evenly.
Used Scrap booking letters for the wording.
Put glass over the top.
Hang & Enjoy!!
Better go cross another one off my list
