Mother's Day Sun Catcher

Since Mother's Day is right around the corner, why not create a heart shaped (or any shape) Contact Nature Collage Sun Catcher! My last post is on how to create a Contact Paper Nature Collage so check that out first if you don't know what I am talking about! Here is my heart idea:

After you have a Contact Paper Nature Collage completed, then use construction paper or tag board to create a heart frame. Create two that match to put one on top of the other and the Contact Paper will be in between the two frames.

Then cut out the frame part.

Place the heart frame over the nature collage and cut to fit. Then tape or glue it.

Put another heart on top and use glue or tape to adhere the two hearts together.

You could just tape it on the window or add some yarn or ribbon for hanging to make a nice Mother's Day gift!
