DIY: I Love You Because Frame

I have seen these “I love You Frames” floating around Pinterest and Etsy and I thought I would but one together for you that would only cost you $1 plus tax. I am always looking for heartfelt gift ideas that aren’t going to break the bank. Beside love it’s about money is it? This DIY is as simple as digging up a frame at the Dollar Tree, digging through your basement or checking out your local Goodwill. I am going to provide you with my artist talent in the form of a free printable PDF template. These I love you frames make the perfect gift for an anniversary, wedding, birthday or Valentines Day! Let’s not forget they also work as a great gift on Mother’s and Father’s Day as a gift from the kids.

All you need to do is print out the above template on to some vellum and add your own piece of scrapbook paper behind it. Or if you have that perfect photo of your special someone then you could place that in the back behind the vellum as well!
