Quick and simple gift #2: "Love" Frames

Here's a 10-minute gift that could be used to decorate your home for Valentine's Day or an anniversary.

You need:
- Four small frames in red and pink (or your choice of colors--maybe the colors you used for your wedding, if these frames are to celebrate an anniversary?)  Various shapes look best.  I purchased mine at Michael's Hobbies and Crafts for $3 each.
- Computer and Desktop Publishing Program, or word processing program, that includes some unique fonts.
- Printer and Ink
- Paper

To make:
1) Measure your frames to determine the size of your letters
2) Go into your dtp or word processing program and select a unique font.  Type the letters "L"  "O" "V" "E", allowing space between each letter
3) Print letters; cut them out
4) Insert in frames
5) Enjoy!

They look especially nice on a fireplace mantel.

You could also attach strong magnets to the back and attach the frames to a refrigerator or other magnetic surface. 

Here's a close up of the frames:
