DIY craft of the month!

1/31/2012

As soon as I saw Becky's DIY craft of the month link up I was beyond excited!
Then I saw that January's theme was love and got even more excited!

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays!
I just love having an excuse to show the hubs some extra love!

So with that being said I put my crafty mind to use and came up with a clever/sentimental gift idea for my love!

What you will need:

-Old window frame
-White or colored envelopes
-One or two 4x6 pictures
-Memory reminders
{examples- movie tickets, concert tickets, dried flower petals etc.}
-A pen

Justin and I have been together for 5 years now, so for each year that we have been together I labeled an envelope.
On each envelope I wrote, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5.

In each envelope I added a memory we shared together, such as a concert ticket stub or a movie ticket I saved.

Since my window had six frames and we've only been together for 5 years I decided to add a wedding picture to ours.
I put the picture in the center with the envelopes surrounding it!

If you've been together longer or shorter than 6 years you could either label the envelopes differently or just add more photos!

Sounds simple enough right?!
It was super easy and I know my husband will love it! :)

Okay, now let me know what you think!


Thanks for such a fun link up Becky! Also stay tuned for more Valentine's Day Ideas!
PS- if you would like to see some of the memories I included let me know,
I will do a separate post about that!

  16. Over the years there have been many different Michael Kors Outlet Store launched with some being more successful than others. Even the Michael Kors Outlet that did not reach the dizzying heights of success as some of Michael Kors's best sellers were still very, very well made leather handbags. One such Michael Kors Outlet Store Online that became a fashion icon was the Michael Kors Wristlet Sale.
