I saw this quote online and it reminded me of a friend who has a birthday tomorrow. But the sign was very rustic and her taste is more elegant, so I wondered if I could recreate the sentiment in a different style as a personalized gift for her.
I downloaded some free fonts online first and practiced with a few different ones I liked to pick the perfect one. Then I went to the craft store to buy an inexpensive (50% off!) but fancy frame, a few pieces of open stock scrapbook paper (also 50% off!) and a couple of flower embellishments that I thought might match (40% off!).
I printed the quote directly onto the scrapbook paper (tried a couple different papers to see which one I liked best) in dark brown with a shadow and cut it to size. I pulled out my hot glue gun and made sure the three flowers were very well adhered to the frame, and…ta-da! Easy. And even though it’s not expensive, I was thinking of someone in particular and it made me happy to make this for her. I hope she likes it!
