I Love You Because...

I created this wedding shower gift for a woman I work with.  She is very sweet and when I saw this frame idea, I knew she would be a perfect fit for it. 

I saw the idea for an "I love you because..." frame HERE at A Content Housewife.  She gives great directions on how to make this cheap and easy gift.  The hardest part was picking out a frame!  This is an 8 x 10 frame from Hobby Lobby. 

You use a dry erase marker on the glass of the frame to finish the sentence and leave it in a place that your hubby is going to find it.  Hopefully he writes a message back to you too! 

I made a coordinating card to go with.  I used a matching piece of the silver damask cardstock I cut for the frame to create this easy 4"x4"card. 

To stamp on the ribbon, I used StazOn ink.  I find that works the best because it doesn't wipe off like some of the other inks I have tried doing this with.  StazOn is pretty amazing stuff! 

Please come back for another visit this weekend.  I am part of a two day fall and Halloween blog hop.  I hope to see you there! 


  1. I love this idea. My sister's birthday is in a week and she keeps looking at wedding stuff on Pinterest. (I think her and boyfriend are getting close) This would be a perfect present for her. Thanks for sharing.

  2. The frame is just perfect! In fact I think I might have to make my own for my upcoming anniversary. Thanks Michele!
