Love Note Valentine's Day frame- step by step tutorial

Hey! It's Kasia here today! With Valentine's Day fast approaching I thought I would share with you a quick idea how to change a simple frame into a sweet and personalized DIY present for your special person! I really like the final result achieved thanks to lovely tags and labels from Love Note line- check them in the shop if you haven't done it yet!
You will need a small frame (I used IKEA one), piece of patterned paper big enough to fill your frame, LOVE NOTE labels and flairs and small elements you would like to use- I picked my favorite stamps and some washi tape.
First crop some paper to the size of your frame

Pick some of the tags from Love Note set and arrange them on your cut patterned paper until you are happy with the composition. 
Here is a little secret I want to share with you- I love my tags and I don't like the idea of wasting them under other layers, so once I'm sure about my composition I like to crop these parts of tags which would end up hidden and save them for future projects 
stick bottom layers to the base with some glue

decorate your mini page with other flat elements. I used some washi tape and stamps to add little details and pops of color to my background.
Slide the background paper inside the frame. Now you can add more dimensional elements. I like to use some 3d foam to make my layers stand out more.

I finished my projects by adding a flair button from Love Notes line directly on my frame. It pops of the page really nicely and adds some more interesting details to this little creation. 
As you can see it's really easy project which you can do in no time but the end result is really cute! Let us know if you create any gifts for your loved ones using Chic Tags goodies! Lots of love!
