Need a last minute Valentines Day Present that is easy and quick to make? Here is what I made for Jake this year:
What exactly is this you might say? It is a way for him and I to show each other in writing daily (or as often as we change it) how much we love each other! I got the inspiration from pinterest. (of course, where else?) http://pinterest.com/pin/64246732153886652/
When I originally saw this I knew immediately I wanted to do this! I just loved the idea. We have the perfect place in our bedroom right when you walk out of the door that I want to hang it on! I don't think I will hang ours from a ribbon though...
So how did I make this and how can you get this done quickly for a last minute valentines present?
First I headed to Hobby Lobby:
So I started with the mat on the frame and the paper behind it and added the I love you saying. (Now I decided to keep the mat in the frame but like you can see in the picture above you do not have to have this...)
Then I added the 'because' out of the letters. I just eyeballed the straight line using a ruler. I think I did pretty good!
Next put it back in the frame.
Next write your message to your loved one by using a dry erase marker on the glass! (Yes I know I need a new dry erase marker... )
How simple is that and what a awesome way to tell your special one how much you love them everyday!!!
Jake I hope you love your present!
Happy Valentine's Day!
