Mother’s Day Heart Art Gift

Hey there We R fans, Laura here today! Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I don’t think there is any better way to show your mom you love her than making a handmade gift! Today I am going to teach you how to create a beautiful heart art piece using some of my favorite We R tools.

Mother's Day Heart Art Gift Idea by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Start by cutting out the letters MOM using the alphabet punch board. I used the second method to cut the M where you start with a larger piece of cardstock rather than gluing two pieces together.

Next, cut out lots of mini hearts using the mini heart clear-cut punch. I used the fun Easy Peasy paper stack from DCWV. It has bright, fresh colors and the paper is double-sided.

I cut out hearts in a rainbow of colors.

Use your hot glue gun to attach the hearts in any pattern you like. I followed the rainbow theme by starting with pinks and reds at the top and ended with greens and teals at the bottom. Before attaching your hearts fold them in half so they look more three dimensional on the letters.

Since the hearts stick out a bit, you can see the backside of the paper from certain angles. You can change up the look by using a paper stack where the pattern on the cardstock is only one sided and the backs are white instead of another pattern.

Attach your hearts on all three letters.

Cut a piece of designer poster board that is 7” tall by 16” wide, using your supreme ruler, craft knife, and cutting mat.

Cut three pieces of chipboard with your utility knife – two pieces that are 7” tall by 4” wide and one piece that is 7” tall by 8” wide. This will allow you to create a tri-fold on your poster board to set the art on a table.

If you want to simply hang the artwork you can cut one large piece of chipboard to fit along the backside. If you plan to hang the artwork you could leave the poster board without a chipboard backing, but you would need a stiffer poster board design than the one I used.

Use hot glue to adhere the letters to the poster board. I added one additional red heart above the letter O on the artwork.

Mom will be sure to love this gift and you can create any color combination to match your mom’s décor at home.

I cut those beautiful butterflies to custom one of the cards. I layered a small butterfly on the card then sewed them together with the Stitch Happy Pen. So easy and so fun ! It’s seriously one of my favorite tools!
