This was the inspiration piece:
And this is mine, with a different spin on it:
Skyler always says he is just blown away by printers. He is positive that a printer is the most amazing electronic that $50 can get you. :)
It printed out very nicely on photo paper!
I cut little hearts out of some red glittery cardstock paper using my Silhouette Cameo and just pasted them over the cities that I wanted. Then, after I carefully cut out each state, I placed them between the two panes of glass for this floating frame that I picked up at Michael's. I taped the back side to the back glass pane so that they would stay in place.
