'Special place in my heart' Art - Anniversary gift
I decided a while ago to create collage wall of photos and other things that are special to us in our master bedroom. So I knew since we were the only ones who were going to see it, I was going to make something symbolic for only us and I wouldn't have to explain what it meant.
I have been addicted to Pinterest for a while now and I pinned the hand made map art. For those of you who are on Pinterest, you have seen it and for those of you who are not on Pinterest...try it out! Well, this piece of art is sold online for 250 pounds without a frame. Seriously!?! I knew I could easily make if for $20.
Here is what I initially created...a frame with 9 special places in our hearts:
I cut out a heart template (3inches wide by 2.5 inches high) with my Cricut and Sure Cuts Alot. I then used this template to determine how to position the map on the Cricut mat to cut the heart exactly where I wanted. For those of you who do not have a cutter (like me until recently), you can draw a basic heart and trace it so all the hearts are the same size.
Our hearts grow with amazing memories for every vacation and so will our 'special place in my heart' art.
I will continue to add hearts around the mat like this:
I think this would make a great wedding, anniversary, or valentines day gift for anyone special in your life.
I hope you like it as much as we do.
