Sharing a Valentine's craft that is easy and so cute!

Hey there! Today’s the $10 on the 10th Blog Hop, this month we are sharing Valentine inspiration! I want to thank Tammy Patina and Paint for hosting the $10 on the 10th blog hop each month. This month, we have 7 bloggers sharing Valentine’s ideas under $10 or less. At the bottom of my page, I will have the links to all the participant and what they are sharing.

For my craft, I am sharing how you can make a heart art using book pages and a canvas.

First step:

Choose your base, I am using a 11 x 14 canvas I purchased in Wal-Mart, a package of two. I painted my canvas with Serenity Blue chalked paint.

It is best to keep the canvas wet, this will help keep the paint gliding on the canvas.

Set the canvas to the side to dry thoroughly.

Second step

I ripped 10 pages out of my book. Cut each page into 4 pieces.

  • Using a pencil, roll the piece on the pencil
  • hot glue the end
  • slide the pencil from the tube

Third step

Using a heart template, I traced to my painted canvas.

Draw a line down the center of the heart.

Forth step

Taking the 40 tubes, cut the tubes to fill in the heart, use the center line as an edge as well. I attached the tubes to my canvas with hot glue.

To keep the outer part of the heart evenly staggered, I used a piece of cut off tube for a guide.

Cut a curve to the outside edge of the tube on the curve part of the heart.

Last step

Place embellishments to your heart. I used a piece of lace to make a bow and place a button in the center of the bow.

Look how cute this craft is and it was under $10.
