"I love you because..." Dry-Erase Picture Frames with FREE Download



Last year I absolutely fell in love with Kiki Creates "I love you because" frames!

I've been meaning to make a similar project ever since and finally got around to it in time for Valentine's Day this year.  I decided not to include it in my "SwellChel Does Valentine's Day" since I'm going to be keeping it up year-round in my home!

For my project I knew I wanted to include a picture of each kid in their frame ...
and here is what I came up with:





We have a huge magnetic board in our house and I decided to put them in frames and put them up there.
My husband and I take turns writing things to the kids on there with dry-erase markers.  The kids love it and we often find our oldest (five-year-old) pointing his out to friends/family!   :)

Here is an example of what we've written on there:




I found REALLY lightweight picture frames in the Dollar Spot at Target, but I've also seen them at my local Dollar Tree.  (The ones I found are document-size, but my prints are 8x10 ... so there is a little bit of white space but that doesn't bother me)

I glued on heavy-duty magnets onto the back and they hang on the magnet board just great ... they would also look neat on a refrigerator (also using magnets), on a wall, or standing on a shelf.


If anyone is interested I am including links so you can download these for FREE!

I would print them 8x10 (but I made them big enough you could also do 16x20).

There is enough room to add either a 5x7 or 4x6 landscape print of your child (or spouse for that matter).  Just glue it onto your print and frame it!  Easy-peasy!

What an AWESOME idea!! We do hearts for Valentine's Day and stick them on their doors. Ours' are still up and I was just thinking it would be fun to keep them up year long...this would be perfect!

Now, hopefully I will remember to come over and snag these after our move is over!
