Robert and I like to keep a weekly menu.
We are trying to eat healthier and this helps us stay on track.
It also helps us with planning grocery shopping trips and staying within budget.
So, for my project, I created something for the both of us for Valentine's Day.
I created a Valentine's theme background for our menu.

The menu is made from a 12x12 frame.
Glass works great with dry erase markers, so this works great as a menu that you can change the background on!

I started with a fun, vintage Valentine's paper for the background.
I then placed a red square of cardstock in the center to have a solid section.
This solid section really helps when writing on the menu, making it a lot easier to read.
I had love themed alphabet stickers that I used to created the titling "Menu".

I stamped kissing deer onto a tag.
I colored the little hearts on the back with a red marker.
I tied the tag with white and gold twine.

Vintage looking cardstock adorns the lower left corner.
Cardstock sticker punch out reads "LOVE".
Gold sequins ribbons runs to the right and above of the sentiment.
Vintage little Valentines girls are decorating the sentiment "LOVE".
