Handmade Valentine Art Canvas using Cup Cake Liners
I made a huge trip to the craft store the other day. I love the craft store. I saw the cutest Valentine cupcake liners. I knew that I'd be able to figure out something cute to do with them. I came up with the idea to make a checkerboard pattern and put the cupcake liners in each block. I ended up changing my plan after I got the first color of cupcake liner glued on. I painted things in the alternating blocks instead of putting the opposite color of liners in them.
I started by measuring out the length and width of the blocks and using a ruler to draw the lines. Then I painted every other block pink and the alternating blocks red. Let the paint dry.
Then, I flattened out the cupcake liners. The ones I used had two different patterns. I ended up only using one pattern on the canvas. After I flattened them out, I loaded them up with mod podge and centered them in the pink squares.
I drew the words and hearts with pencil in the red squares. Then, I painted them with white paint. I also added white "stitches" to the pink squares. I think it turned out pretty cute.
