$3 Thursday – Valentine Trio

I was happy to see the dollar spot at Target was recently restocked with lots of springy goodness.  I keep hoping they will have seasonal rub-ons again that would make a great inexpensive subway style art like the Halloween one I made here.

No luck so far but I did find some great dimensional heart stickers.

I thought I could redo the butterfly frames I showed here but then I found a set of three frames also in the dollar spot.

You really can’t beat the price.

The frames were $2.50 for the three but still a good deal for an inexpensive Valentine display.  I wasn’t too excited about the purple but hey, it’s only a seasonal decoration.

I knew I had papers at home that I would put in the frames.

I found it easiest to remove the screws

Since I wanted the dimension of the stickers to show I took out the plastic sheet that came with the frames and put in some cardstock then put the back of frame back on.

At first I wanted to use a different pattern for each frame but I didn’t like the black paper in the purple frame so I went with the same paper in all the frames.

A lovely pink paper with pink foil dots all over it.

I used four stickers in each frame for a simple look.

I knew just where I wanted these frames.

In the small wall space between my coat closet and my newly organized pantry.

Out with the Noel and Joy signs and in with my framed heart trio.

A nice fresh look for this small wall space.

A great inexpensive art project.

I know, I technically went over my $3 budget for the trio, but per frame I’m within my $3 limit.

 

Supplies:

Frames-      $2.50 for 3 @ Target

Stickers -     $1.00 per pack of 16 @ Target

Paper -      On hand – $.50 sheet

Foam squares for hanging on wall -  craft supply

Total cost:   $4 for 3 frames or $1.33 per frame

 

Let’s go with the $1.33 per frame cost to keep this in my $3 limit for my $3 Thursday  posts.

 

Thanks for stopping by.
