Key To My Heart

Another day, another framed piece, 
with many more to come...

This was another simple project and it's my favorite so far!  It's great not only for Valentine's Day, but year round.

I bought everything at Hobby Lobby - great sale - 50% off frames, scrapbook paper and many jewelry making materials.  Happy Dance!  With the materials below, I'll be able to make 5 to 6 different pieces.  The hearts were 50% off, Keys 25% off.

I used camel colored textured paper - I think fabric backing would look even better...maybe next time!

The matte is textured - it doesn't show well in the photo.

I didn't end up needing the hot glue gun, I was able to bend
 the wire to attach it to the matte.
Close up of the brands 

Photo taken during the day, better lighting. 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
I'll be sharing what I did with the rest of the 
keys in a future post...

Cheers and thanks for stopping by!
