I have a super easy little Valentine’s Day Gift that can be used for almost anyone! This Key to My Heart Frame can be so versatile. Fill it with a picture of your kids and give to grandparents! Put a picture of you and your significant other and it’s a cute gesture of your love.
If you are like me and you may or may not hoard craft supplies you may or may not have several (dozen) of these simple $1 frames that you can find in almost every craft store. I love them. I use them for so many different things (other than frames most times) and so I always have them on hand. They are great when the kids what to craft too…let them have at it. Paint, glitter, stickers, anything…they love it!
Well today I am transforming one into a sweet Valentine’s Day Gift. The Key to My Heart frame!
Supplies for Key to My Heart Frame:
- Craft Frame
- Paint Brush
- Small key (either decorative or a real one not being used)
- Vinyl/transfer paper
- Electronic Cutting Machine like a CAMEO or Portrait
- Paint Marker (If you do not have an electronic cutting machine with vinyl)
OK I started out by painting my frame white. You can do any color you’d like.
I have spotted these cute keys for so long and have always wanted to use them for something! I found this pack in the $1 at Michael’s.
Then I took one of the keys and tied it onto the top of the frame using baker’s twine. I gave it three passes of twine so it had a bit of character!
Then I used my CAMEO and I cut out the words “The Key to my Heart” in red vinyl. If you don’t have a cutting machine and vinyl you can use scrapbooking stickers, a paint marker or you can even paint the letters on with stencils. This project is totally versatile to what you have on hand or access to!
I applied my vinyl to the bottom right corner. You can apply yours anywhere you like!
Insert your favorite picture and enjoy your work!
