I bought 14 x 14 canvas and evenly spaced out ~ 2 inch strips of contact paper and applied black paint in between each strip. Once that dried I laid a heart stencil out of contact paper on the center of the canvas. I applied 3 or 4 coats of red paint and let it dry.
I made another stencil using "Set Fire to Rain" font for the Me + You section.
And the most meticulous part of this project was gluing the buttons on one by one. I bought a couple of packages of red buttons from Michaels for this project.
