And I think it is cute enough for year round!
We do... now, not every day...but we really do still use it.
I also shared yesterday, 5 Reasons Our Marriage Is Strong.
I think using that little "I love you because" frame helps strengthen us too. Remember...its the little things. :)
Here were my supplies.
Brass thumbtacks from Dollar Tree, a box and some poster board.
For one, we were having a huge snow storm and I wasn't going out.
Two, I'm cheap and I really didn't want to spend money on a white canvas board.
I keep poster board on hand. I bought this 10 pack at Wally World for about $3.
Oh, I also used my trusty glue gun to "wrap" my box. I don't think you really need instructions for that.
Just slap some glue on and wrap that baby.
I think the hardest part for me was picking out the font I wanted to use.
I ended up using Times Roman.
I printed out the letters and laid them on the box.
I lined them up where I wanted them.
Then I traced the letters with a ballpoint pen.
I started pushing the thumbtacks in, but then I noticed that I could see white through. Hmmm...
I didn't like that. I tried to overlap them, but it started getting too "bulky". So. I took out the tacks and grabbed some goldish paint I had in my art box.
You can see the holes in the L.
So, I tried it again.
I basically outlined the letters with the thumbtacks, then filled it in. It's not perfect.
I don't need perfect.
Do you know a love that is perfect? Oh! Yes I do!
God's love is perfect! Thank you, Lord!
So, all you really need is some Dollar Store Brass Tacks and a Box and there you go! LOVE it!!
