Today is my sixth wedding anniversary. This year I decided to make my husband a gift, something to add to our home decor. Here’s what I made!
It was so easy! I purchased an 8×10 photo frame from Michael’s, teal scrapbook paper, heart shaped paper brads, and the most amazing crafting tool that ever existed! Did you know Fiskars makes shape punches? I got the large heart, but they have a whole variety of shapes. I was so excited to find one because I was dreading having to try to trace and cut out six identical hearts. You can find them here.
I decided on the six locations I wanted to include and simply printed out a google map for each. I cut them into hearts using the Fiskars heart punch. I inserted a heart shaped brad over Google’s little map pin because it’s much cuter!
Then in Microsoft Word I typed up the description for each; where we met, where we wed, honeymoon, first home, where our lives were born, and where we’ll spend forever.
After everything was cut I measured and marked the paper so the hearts would be evenly spaced. I used scotch tape to attach the map hearts and descriptions, but you could use craft glue.
Finally, I reassembled the frame and there you have it, a meaningful, handmade anniversary gift for your love.
