Happy Crafting!

Now is the perfect time to blog!  I was in the middle of watching The Bachelorette and of course was really into Constantine telling Ashley that he really wasn't "that into her".  How can Obama just interrupt this moment? Totally jk...maybe.  Tonight I also worked on another craft!  Oh're looking at Mrs. Crafty Pinkture Perfect right here!  :) Again, inspired by Pinterest, I saw this fun idea and adapted it to what I really liked.
What you Need: 
-1 frame (mine was a wedding gift three years ago that we hadn't used yet, Oops!)
- hole punch of your choice (on clearance right now at Michael's)
- Paint Swatches (FREE!)  Thank you Walmart for letting me do my craft!
 Step 1: Use the hole punch on the paint swatches!  Make as many as you need to complete your project.
 ( I chose to do hearts!) Like I said earlier, the really fancy hole punches at Michael's (originally $8.99) are reduced down to $3.99!!!  I didn't know this until I got to the register which made this craft even more fabulous!
 Step 3: Then I put the hearts where I wanted them on the matte for the frame.  This prepared me to glue the hearts down with a plan, instead of going in cold turkey.
 Step 4: After gluing and letting it dry, I put the frame back together and there you have it!!!  A colorful piece of art to add a little glitz and glam to a room of your choice!  My choice?  Our formal living room that currently brown, yellow, and blue!  Woohoo! :)
I have seen pictures of other people that do hearts, circles, diamonds, and different shapes.  Some people use them for classroom projects or on smaller frames and only shades of one color.  No matter what you choose to do, I am sure it will look beautiful! :)
