As usual, the Valentine’s Day merchandise popped up on store shelves the day after Christmas. Seriously, nothing irritates me more than seeing bathing suits and heart-shaped boxes of candy before New Year’s Day. Once the holidays are over, I am usually in clean-it-out and get-rid-of-it mode. I don’t think I’m the only one, because January is a great month at Goodwill. I mean, you can find some awesome stuff this time of year! But I have to control myself, as I really do mean to clean stuff out, not bring stuff in. So as I made my weekly stop there, I used a lot of restraint and only bought a few frames. Here is a little project I knocked out yesterday while crafting at my friend Joy’s house. She got a teal cricut for Christmas, which is set up in her new gorgeous craft room. I mean, it’s so pretty I was a little afraid to actually craft in there for fear of messing it up, LOL! So here’s what I came up with:
It wasn’t an original idea, I have to admit. I got the idea from one of my favorite blogs, Tatertots and Jello
. Here is what you need for this super simple project.
Cut out your cardstock to fit your frames, and then arrange a pattern of your choosing with the marbles and glue in place. Super simple! I just placed the glass behind the cardstock.
This project cost me $5 total, as I already had some of the supplies on hand. It only took about an hour to complete!
