heart map shadowbox frames

I was inspired by a couple of things I "pinned" on Pinterest a couple of months ago. {This post by Everything Fab and this post by Tickety Boo.}

I knew I needed to make my own version!

Here are my heart map shadowbox frames...

I used these frames from the dollar store. I painted them white, which took a few coats.

I used some AMA maps to cut out a couple places in the states that are special to me & my husband. (Las Vegas- our honeymoon spot and also Los Angeles/Anaheim)

I made a stencil using a piece of cardstock and traced around with a pencil, then cut out the hearts.

Then I glued them into the frames using Mod Podge.

The Los Angeles one- I made sure to include LA, Hollywood, Anaheim, and the beaches we visited (and the ones we're planning on visiting next month!)

The Las Vegas one- I made sure to include Vegas with Hoover Dam of course!

They will be the perfect addition to our bedroom!

And the project cost me only $2.50- not too shabby! :)
