Love Ticket

I was walking around in Hobby Lobby the other day, as I often do. I just don’t like that there are only a few friendly people there and that almost ALL their stuff is made in China. So I saw these love tickets in the Valentine’s aisle and I thought what a great idea, but they were rather blah. 008 (Sorry, someone else was standing there so I didn’t get the greatest picture.)

I went home and searched my mom’s wood and found the perfect piece. Instead of cutting the rounded edges, I just marked them off and painted them black, and then scallop cut a piece of paper and used that for a stencil on the end edges. Painted the rest pink. Textured with a darker pink and distressed the whole thing. I drew the middle outlines and colored in the X and Os. Then added the heart stickers. love ticket

I loved this part so much I wasn’t sure I wanted to do anything else to it. I thought about just putting LOVE, or just a big heart. I could always make another one. I finally settled on what to do.
