Romance is in the air…

…and in our new Vintage Romance kit. You will just love the soft elegance of this kit!

As a way to showcase the vintage valentine that is included in the kit, I decided to make a wall-hanging using a shallow metal tin (I think I found these at Hobby Lobby, and they come in various sizes).  With the ever-handy Mod Podge, I adhered a piece of sheet music to the back of the tin (I did not Mod Podge the front of the sheet music). Using the vintage pink crepe, I created a ruffle on each side of the sheet music, and glued a strip of the vintage ribbon down the center. Love this ribbon-I think it comes from the 50s.

Ok, GLITTER ALERT! I cannot get enough of the stuff! To bring out the gold accents from the vintage valentine (isn’t that face just adorable?), I cut out a pink heart from the blush colored cardstock from the kit, crumpled it, and edged it with gold glitter. A little bow from another gorgeous vintage ribbon and a button finish it off. The sweet message was also cut out, and trimmed with glitter, then “lifted” using adhesive foam squares.

To finish the tray off, and add some extra texture, I glued down some Vintage Glass Beads, and MORE glitter! That sweet little bird was a Target find in the after Christmas sales. Looks perfect perched right on top!

Also from the Vintage Romance kit, I made this quick and easy wall hanging. The top heart is the inside message from the vintage valentine, trimmed in glitter. The smaller heart was free-hand cut from sheet music, adhered to the heart doily, and trimmed in glitter.

Sweet pink forget me nots and more of the vintage pink ribbon finish it off. The two hearts are attached by a scrap of pink ribbon, and the hanging loop was created using the vintage strand of sequins.

Its  a little difficult to show in a photograph, but these sequins are just incredible. They have aged so beautifully!  Wouldn’t this be pretty also on top of a gift box? Or, even attaching a wooden dowel to the smaller heart and using it in a bouquet of flowers? So many little ways to implement vintage touches…

I hope these ideas inspire some vintage valentine creativity in your home!

Create vintage,

Michelle
