I have pretty much the best husband ever, y’all. He is super hot, easy-going, smart, fantastic at considering what is best for others above his own preferences, a terrific dad to Burke and Piper Jane- I could go on and on. And I definitely don’t tell him all of the things that I appreciate about him often enough. Which brings us to this love note on a string.
Want to make one for the Love of Your Life too? You’ll need:
-cardstock (I used four pieces)
-paper cutter and corner rounder (both optional, but nice to have on hand)
-sewing machine and sewing supplies
1. Type up a list of things you love about your guy. Do you love his dance moves? The way he reads to your kids every night? His loyal heart? Be specific! Add detail to the background of your ‘list’ if you want (Adam loves all things outdoors and would always choose neutrals over colors, so I made a monochromatic background of trees for my list).
2. Print out and cut apart (round the corners of each one if you want). You should have a pile of things you love, ready to be sewn into a garland.
3. Pull the thread of your sewing machine until you have a decent ‘tail.’ Feed your pile of compliments through the sewing machine one at a time, stitching them together in a row. Leave another ‘tail’ at the other end of the garland.
4. Hang up your Love Note on a String as a little reminder of the plethora of small things you love about your love.
