If you’re looking for a fun little way to say I love you, how about making a Heart Message Board you can leave love notes on all week.
Using contact paper and dry erase markers, you can change the message every day.
I found this roll of marvelous contact paper at the dollar store. Sometimes the things I find there are quite surprising. You’ll need contact paper, a piece of cardboard, ribbon, trim, glue, scissors and a nail.
Cover the front of the cardboard and fold edges around to back. Trim the side pieces at an angle so when you fold them in, they taper out from the center (like an envelope) and won’t show. I like layering the edges in the center because it keeps the paper from coming loose from the cardboard.
Next, glue your trim on in a heart-shape. I placed mine then glued a little section at a time. You can use plain white glue, craft glue or hot glue, your choice. I used white glue and held it in place with push pins until it dried.
If you want, you can write something like “Love You Because” in permanent marker and draw a line then fill in the blank every day, or leave the whole thing blank and write a message every day. Just remember to use dry erase markers for what you want to be able to change daily.
You could also use this as a big Valentine card and could write the message in permanent ink.
