What I Made Wednesday {Bursting Heart: Love You More}

Does it get any sweeter than when you have the following conversation?

Me: "Love you, Kiddo."
Kiddo: "Love you more, mom."
Me: "Love you most."
Kiddo: "Love you mostest."

It's those times I want to remember forever and celebrate today. For all the smoochiness in the world, this project is dedicated to loving mostest!

What You'll Need
Heart-Shaped Punch
Panoramic Photo Frame
3 contrasting cardstock papers
Letter stickers
Glue stick (not shown)
Scissors (in case you need to cut the paper)

What You'll Do
Take the frame apart and save the glass for another project (a 2 for 1).
Trace your cardstock to the right shape to fit the frame and cut.
Go ahead and place it back into the frame, without the glass, remember?

Get cozy with your puncher and start punching away. I actually only ended up needing about 4 in each color.

Fold each and every heart perfectly in half. You're working with cardstock so it may be difficult to get a tight crease. If you find this to be the case, take a pencil you have laying around and use it to help make the fold tighter by running the edge of the pencil over the fold.

Glue each heart, alternating colors, half back, to half back, so you end up with a stack of folded in-half hearts. When opened you should have a fan of hearts.

Lay the fan out and apply glue to the end hearts on each side of the fan. Stick it right smack dab in the middle of your cardstock that's already in the frame.

What You'll Need to Know to Finish
Now the easy part, take your letter stickers and start spelling out "Love You" to the left of the fanned heart and "Love You More" on the right side of the heart. I ran out of "O"s so I had to use zeros. I don't think anyone will notice.

It's always a good idea to work backwards when getting letters placed where you want them.
Now, how cute and easy was that?
