A cute little heart

Today's share is a wiggly heart - is there a real name for this type of item? - that I altered. I found it at AC Moore for only $1. It's perfect for a photo holder, or you could clip a small note on it. Behind the heart shape, which is wooden, is a clothes pin.

To alter the "wiggler", I first painted one coat of pink with Making Memories scrapbook paints and let it dry. Then I mod podged pattern paper on each side, sponged ink around the edges and tied a ribbon around the bottom. The epoxy heart is attached with a nifty little tagger tool.

I think this would make a nice desk topper to showcase a favorite photo - like the one of my niece above!

happy stampin'
