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.
