Happy Valentine's Day { and a DIY project }

Happy Valentine's Day!

We just celebrated our 2nd Anniversary,
so I wanted to share a little DIY anniversary gift
that I made for my husband.

I found an inspiration photo of a framed anniversary print on etsy,
and that was all I needed to spark my imagination.

* my architecture school supplies continue proving useful time and time again when it comes to DIY crafts at home (:

I used my cutting mat and xacto knife to hand cut all of the letters from colored cardstock.

My plan was to glue down the letters and then use Mod Podge to seal them,
but they didn't really need to be sealed after gluing in place with my Scotch scrapbook stick.
So I skipped the Mod Podge!

After getting everything glued in place,
I placed our personalized anniversary plaque in a frame from Ikea.
(We bought the Ribba frame for only $4.99!)

This personalized gift found a perfect home
on top of the shelving unit in our office!
