Valentines Day is coming!
It's been a while peeps but here we are. I love Valentines Day. I know many a modern couples that view it as a Hallmark and Godiva Chocolate Holiday. But really that's okay with me I like both ;-) I really wanted to make a gift that was not so cliche' so I created this "I Love You Because..." Dry erase board all you need to make one is....
(I used a 8x10 horizontally)
You can use any size you want
I got this one at Hobby Lobby
Dry Erase Marker
(I used a OXO Brand marker with a twist out tip and small erase topper I bought at Staples)
I hide it behind the frame
(I used Matte Black) From My Vinyl Direct here is the link
It is available in many sizes and many colors.

Printable Adhesive Fabric Sheets
From you guessed it My Vinyl Direct link is below
The Paper Studio SPARE PARTS fabric flowers
Black Antique Fabric Flower Asst. 9pc. pack
I got them at Hobby Lobby
I'm sure you just got back from your run to the craft store (your welcome for a excuse to go ;-)
1st take your printable adhesive fabric sheet and print a pattern on it I used a fill pattern from Silouette's store called Labels. I cut mine with the Silhouette to 8"x10" but you can use scissors
You can easily use a piece of scrapbook paper instead ,but I like the subtle texture of the fabric sheets. I'm a interior designer and slightly obsess over textures LOL.
I loved this frame but it had a 5x7 matt I simply flipped it to the back of the frame and added placed the printed fabric sheet on the glass in front...the cardboard insert...and then the matt back in the frame.
I added a little drip drip or 3 of hot glue on the back of the flower embellishments and stuckem' to the frame.
We are getting there this is the progress so far Weeeee! So much fun
You really should stop and pat yourself on the back.
This is how I arranged the flowers. Because yes I had to show a close up.
The My vinyl Direct Matte Vinyl has a little shimmer to it which I LOOOOOVE!
Peel up your rectangle
weed all the letters remove all the tiny pieces
I use a dental pick set I bought at Harbor Freight Tool Store for like $4
cut along the rectangle lines
trace your cut rectangle on your transfer tape leave a little extra space to give room for not perfectly steady hands you need wiggle room
cut along the trace lines
peel and stick the transfer tape to the vinyl letters and burnish it with whatever tool you ave I use my old gift cards ....the vinyl should stick to the tape
peel the backing off the vinyl
stick the vinyl on the glass and burnish it into place smoothing out any bumps or bubbles
remove the transfer tape and viola!
sit back and enjoy
