This Valentine specimen art is a version of specimen art I saw on Pinterest. "Specimen art" is just a collection of similar objects that's displayed as art. I had originally wanted to make specimen art with butterflies, but hearts are so much easier to cut out! I really wish I had a silhouette cutter for projects like these, but since I don't have one, I just cut the hearts out the old fashioned way by tracing and cutting. (If you have a paper punch, that would work too. The basic idea is to just repeat a shape.) Even doing it old school, this project is super simple.
Trace a heart onto cardboard to make a stencil.
Then trace hearts onto scrapbook paper and cut out.
Glue the hearts onto a piece of white paper or card stock.
Pop it in a frame.
That's it! Super simple, right?
It looks so pretty, I may have to keep it displayed even when Valentine's Day is over!
