Heart Handprint Canvas for Valentine's Day

My kids and I made a quick Valentine craft over the weekend, that I wanted to pop in and share with you.  I already had all the materials on hand, since I'm a crazy craft lady horder always buying supplies for "someday".  It was inspired by this pin, but we changed it up to be a keepsake item versus a card.

I wanted to include both of my kiddo's hand prints so our "heart" is a little off kilter but I think that makes it even more adorable.  After we carefully made our prints, I added the year and the kids' names & ages with rub-ons.  (As usual, the kid's names are digitally edited out for this online share.).

I used more rub ons to add a little sentiment, replacing the letters /o/ with wood veneers.  A crop-a-dile helped me punch the holes into the artists mat board, which have a canvas like texture but are solid boards and so easier to get a good impression on. Then all I had to do was add a ribbon for hanging.  I love how it turned out!
