LOVE


Ever see these?  They are the iconic LOVE Sculptures
top: Philadelphia
bottom: NYC


I personally think they are really cool!  While flipping through the Sunday paper, I came across a piece of framed wall art with this LOVE in it.  It cost $9.00, pretty cheap right?  I decided that I could make it cheaper and customize it to the way I wanted it.


I bought a frame 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby
1 piece of 12x12 scrapbook paper with love all over it
 and 1 piece of 8 1/2 x11 cardstock, which was also 50% off


I used my Cricut machine to cut the letters LOVE
Cut the cardstock to fit my 8x10 frame
Adhered the letters to the cardstock and.....
My version of the iconic sculpture.
Simple but cute.  You could use it to decorate your house, or give it to your LOVE!


Happy Hump Day! ♥ BJ

Love it! :)
I once did a tour of Philly and a tour guide told us that the reason letter O is tilted is that "love is never perfect"! I thought that was so sweet!
