Handmade valentines day gift idea

I made this picture/collage for Tim for xmas but I also think it would make a perfect and personal valentines day gift. 

What you will need:

Box frame 
Wrapping paper or fabric for the background
Strong glue
Mini pegs
Wooden and metal hearts 
Your favourite pictures

I saw a similar frame to this in BHS before Christmas and decided I could make one myself to go in our new shabby chic room. I always think handmade gifts are gratefully received and personally I love getting crafty every now and again. It was really easy to make and there are loads are different things you could do with the collage, I chose the hearts as I thought they looked quite vintage. I have meaning to buy a special pen to write a little message on the wooden heart. I bought all my stuff from Hobbycraft but you could buy your bits and bobs from any craft store. 

Let me know if you decide to make a picture collage for a loved one
