Love Canvas

Happy Friday my friends! Are you excited for the weekend? I’ve been busy planning two parties, a Super Bowl party and Valentine’s Day party next Saturday. Do you enjoy planning parties? I’ll admit they can be hectic and sometimes stressful. But it’s always fun getting together with family and friends. 
With all the planning going on I haven’t had much time to finish my Valentine’s decor. My Valentine’s Day Garland has been pretty lonely the past few weeks. So last night I made a fun little canvas to add to our decor. The best part about this is that everything is completely removable. That way I can reuse the canvas if I want to. 
To make this I took a strip of houndstooth glitter paper and a corner rounder punch. To adhere the strip I used glue dots. I then hot glued the ruffled ribbon onto the paper. The hearts were cut out using my Cricut in two different sizes and hot glued onto the ribbon. To finish it off I cut out the word love out of vinyl. 
I LOVE everything about this canvas! 
It’s cute, simple, and girly..just my style! 
If you follow me on Twitter then you may have seen the mess I made making this. Someone please tell me I’m not the only one with a kitchen counter like this?
Have a great weekend my friends! I’ll be back Monday with a Super Bowl party recap.
Linking up to these parties, TCB, Craft Envy

    Super cute! I love that you made it re-usable :) I enjoy decorating for the holidays, but I often hate the idea of storing too many decorations.
