To create the above look, simply print your message and cut into a heart shape–that will allow you to use the shape as a guide. Then using mini  Post-it® papers, outline your heart. I created three layers, making sure that in just two of the layers (inner and outer) the non sticky edges don’t touch/overlap, to give the heart a ruffled look.

Then I added 10 balloons (one for each year of our anniversary, which included 2 pink hearts and 8 white stars). Attached to each of the 10 balloons, I taped our favorite wedding photographs, so that they would suspend in the air and twirl around! On our bed, I placed our wedding albums along with cut out little pink hearts from mini Post-it® pads (that way they ‘stick’ to where you want them).
