I decided to make something along these lines, which I pinned here.
I have liked these type of things for a while now, but never really had the reason to make one. James' cousin is getting married next week so thought this would make a nice keepsake gift.
I got the medium sized box frame and paper materials from Hobbycraft, which all came to about a tenner.
I set up, cut the backing paper (after much deliberation as to which colour paper to use from my selection) to size. Then messed about cutting hearts in different ways, my blunt scalpel had seen better days and left a rubbish cut so decided I'd just use scissors instead. This bit would be loads easier if you had a heart cutter but they were £10 each so couldn't afford that just for one project!
I settled on a layout with rough paper first-because knowing me I would have done it completely wrong if I had used the nice stuff first time round!
I stuck them down so that alternate halves of heart were stuck. With the heart that holds the wedding date on I chose the purple card to stand out (I have a feeling the wedding colour is purple too but don't actually know for certain), just wrote the date on with a marker pen, unfortunately my silver marker was too fat!
