Valentine Sign

This is a really simple Valentine's sign that I made with the same frame I had up at Halloween.
I like the frame because it's a shadow box type frame and the back comes off so I can just interchange it for each holiday.

I cut strips of fabric about 2.5" and gathered them on my sewing machine.
Can you tell I'm into ruffles?
Where else can I glue them? :)

Then I simply used my hot glue gun and glued the fabric in vertical rows to a piece of cardboard cut the size of the back of the frame. The closer together you glue them, the fuller the ruffles.

This is what it looks like with all the fabric glued on to the cardboard.

And this is it in the frame.

It took me an entire day to decide what to put over the ruffles and how to attach it.
I went back and forth with transparencies, chipboard, and more & I settled on the easiest thing I could think of--card stock cut with my Cricut.
I found this free "Adore" svg download at, cut it on my Cricut and attached it with a few dabs of hot glue.

That's it!
I really like the textures and 3D-ness of it.
(I know that's not a real word, but for the life of me I can't think of a better one right now.)
