First I went and got an inexpensive 8×10 frame, a piece of pretty scrapbook paper, 2 eye hooks, white curling ribbon and 2 dry erase markers.  Then I set about putting everything together.

I opened the frame.

Once it was cut, I wrote “i love you because…” on it in black magic marker.

Once that was in tight, I attached an eye hook to each of the top corners.
