I love the idea of making gifts for each other for Valentine’s Day since Christmas was only a couple of months ago, and that’s usually when we buy each other gifts, so I don’t really have a wish list built up by the time Valentine’s Day comes around.
So this year, I made this for Michael.
It’s a framed collection of the states both Michael and I called home growing up, and then the state we call home now. It was super easy to make and just about $40. That includes the 8×10 pictures of the states, as well as the frame, itself. (Because the mat board that came with the frame was white, I also had to buy some black bulletin board paper for the background. I bought it at a teacher store for about $8).
So, first, I cut out the states from the photos I printed from this website.
Then, I marked the general area within each state where we lived with a red heart using a Sharpie.
Finally, I taped the states in place using double stick tape and added the frame.
What do you do for V-day gifts?
