I’ve been trying to come up with a cute craft to make using the lyrics to our first dance as husband and wife…
We danced to The Way You Look Tonight sung by Tony Bennett. It was perfect for us and a moment I will never forget.
And I think I found the perfect solution…..and the best part is that it was easy and only cost a few dollars!
Here’s what I did:
First, I printed off the lyrics to our song. I used Courier font size 10 and printed it on cream colored paper. I decided to bold a few of my favorite words like “love” “heart” “tonight” etc. I just copied and pasted the lyrics over and over until I had a full page. Then I used my heart shaped punch to punch out the lyrics, making sure to get all of the words punched at least once.
I also printed a “j+j 10.05.08” on red cardstock for our initials and wedding date.
Then I went through all of the hearts and selected my 24 favorites. I picked up a white frame with mat from Michaels (using a 50% off coupon) and arranged the hearts on some burlap I already had.
At this point it sure helps if you have a cute side kick to approve your burlap usage.
I wanted the hearts to pop, so I slightly folded them in half. Then I used my hot glue gun to put a tiny dot of glue on the crease.
Then glue your hearts on! This was such an easy project.
And there it is! I like how the hearts aren’t flat against the burlap. Oh, and please ignore that rip in the mat on the upper right corner….it’s since been replaced!
I decided to go ahead and frame our wedding invitation too. It’s still one of my favorite things about our wedding. I apologize for the bad lighting….it’s not a very well lit hallway. These two frames are hanging on the wall opposite of our gallery wall, which you can see HERE. They are the perfect addition to the hallway.
Here’s a better photo of our wedding invite. Can we please do the wedding all over again? It was too much fun.
