"I Love You Because" Frame (Free Download!)

I saw this cute little frame on Pinterest, and I thought it was such a great idea!

Since I usually leave the house in the mornings before Jeff gets up, I thought it would be kind of fun to leave him a sweet little note to read! Luckily, this is a really easy project that takes very little time to create!

I whipped up a quick design in PowerPoint (mimicking the one that I saw on Pinterest, which I believe was originally done by this blogger/Etsy-seller), saved it as a JPEG, imported it into iPhoto, cropped it as an 8x10, and clicked print! Super easy.

You can download the file by just clicking that image to enlarge it, then right clicking to save it. Just crop it for whatever size frame you have (using whatever photo printing software your computer has), and print (I just used regular printer paper, but you could be fancy and do cardstock of some sort).

I bought a $1 8x10 wooden frame from the dollar store and gave it a quick coat of glossy white spray paint. Then I popped the "I love you because:" paper in it and hung it on the wall in our closet!


The best part of this whole thing is that Jeff's out of town for work right now, so it will be a sweet surprise when he gets home. Teehee! I hope he doesn't think its stupid. Haha. Hopefully he'll play along and write me nice things too. :o)


  1. Cute! I've seen that on Pinterest, but I'm not sure where to put it where it won't be overly cheesy, haha. Your closet is a good idea! We have separate closets, so I'll have to figure something else out.

  2. I totally did this as my "paper" gift to the hubby on our one year!

  3. Thank you sooooo much for making this and sharing it!! I pinned it on Pinterest and then couldn't find it on the blog that was linked to it! Frustrating...I googled it and found you...thank you for being crafty! :o)
