XOXO Valentine's Day craft idea

I’ve admired Jen and her blog, Tatertots & Jello for a long time. How she balances being a mom and an amazing crafter boggles my mind. She posted this adorable idea for Valentine’s Day last year and I knew I had to try it.



What you’ll need:
4 frames (I got mine at Dollar Tree)
2 Sheets of scrapbook paper
Floral marbles
E-6000 Glue (found at Michael’s)
Ruler



Directions:

Cut paper down to size to fit the frames (in my case, 4x6)

Found a cup the right size to trace my O’s and then found the middle of the paper and used a ruler to make my X’s.



Take the E-6000 Glue and put it on the X’s and O’s that you made. Immediately begin adding the marbles to the glue one by one until it’s all filled up. Leave it out overnight to dry.



Add completed X’s and O’s to the frames. The glass that comes with the frames I put behind the paper with the marbles on it. That way, it keeps everything together to use for other projects or for framing photos after Valentine’s Day.



Enjoy!
