Uses for a Heart in a Frame
This vintage inspired heart shape inside a frame would make a perfect WEDDING GIFT. Another great wedding idea would be to make an initial. Make the married couples last name initial. Choose a frame you love such as this one in champagne tones. You can choose any color or style of your choice and any color bling. The bling I used came from TOTALLY DAZZLED.

I used three bronze scroll pieces for the under lying portion from Hobby Lobby in the clock section. Please watch my FACEBOOK LIVE to see more on this by clicking HERE.
I wanted to do an “event” for Totally Dazzled” and wanted to do a heart shape inside a frame. What I wasn’t sure about was what metal tone color to use or what color gemstones to use. Totally Dazzled has so many to choose from. Later, I plan to make a heart or angel out of some pearl Dazzle. ….Coming soon….
Another beginning step was to choose a frame in the size I wanted. This frame was in my stash from a thrift store. I collect frames all year round. They really came in handy over the holidays and now for Valentine’s.
The champagne color of the frame is one of my favorites. So when I put the ANTIQUE BRONZE bling next to it, it was serendipity. I did have to order another pack of ten, because I didn’t have enough on hand. It came in plenty of time for my EVENT. TOTALLY DAZZLED really ships fast.
After deciding on the colors, I then needed to decide on the background. Depending on the frame, you have to decide to attach the bling to the background directly or to the glass. For the background, I went with a sheet of crinkled beige scrapbook paper so that the bling would show up nicely. For this frame attaching it to the glass made more sense and made things much easier.
The Supplies and Process
I found a heart shape that I liked on PicMonkey and luckily it didn’t need to be enlarged or made smaller. The size and shape of your heart will depend on YOUR frame and whether you want it portrait or landscape. Tape the heart shape to the front of your scrapbook paper and follow that outline while you glue the bling down. Later you can remove it and voila the bling will be heart shaped. I tried several types of glue, but the best and easiest was HOT GLUE.
Begin with your larger pieces of bling and then fill in with the smaller pieces.
