I have been wanting to make this for quite some time, but was waiting until I found the perfect cursive font. Extreme Fonts was exactly what I was looking for! I bought an old picture frame at Goodwill. I removed the picture and all the staples holding the glass in the frame. I stained the frame. I cut out vinyl letters, and put it on the glass. I reattached the glass with clear silicone. I was so excited with how it turned out.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Picture Frame
  • Vinyl
  • stain
  • Clear silicone

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Use any size of picture frame you want. I used an old one I found at Goodwill. The frame I used was 26.5 x 22.5 in. Remove the picture from the frame.
Remove the staples from the frame that hold the picture/glass in the frame.
Stain the frame (optional). I used 3 coats to get the frame as dark as I wanted.
Use Cricut Craft Room to make your words. I used Extreme Fonts for the words: Loved, Love, Always, and Always.
I wanted the L and A bigger than the rest of the word. The L is 6 in tall and "oved" is 4.5 in tall. The smaller Love is 3 in tall. The A on Always is 6 in tall "lways" is 4.5 in tall. The smaller Always is 3 in tall. If you try to type "lways" in a text box, the "y" does not hang down like you want, so you have to do the "y" and the "s" separate and connect them to the end of the word. I welded all the letters together by making the spacing -2.
I used Type Candy cartridge to make the words: you yesterday, you still, have, will. The letters are 1.5 in tall.
I made the hearts in the corners from the Cricut Essential cartridge. I put Heart2-s inside of Heart2. The outside heart on the bottom left is 3 in tall, with the other heart inside. The heart on the top right is 3.5 in tall, with the other heart inside. When I made the hearts on the top right, I flipped the image so they would face the opposite direction. When I cut out the hearts, I carefully peeled the inside piece of vinyl out, so that you could see the two hearts, then I stuck it to a piece of backing I had from vinyl that was already tore off, as in the picture below. This created the second heart. Put them on the glass right next to each other. For the heart on the bottom right, I used Cricut Alphabet cartridge. The heart is 2.75 in tall.
Once the vinyl was cut out, I used transfer paper to put it on the glass. It helps if you clean the glass with a vinegar/water solution first to make sure there is no dust on the glass.
Once your vinyl is on the glass, it is time to attach the glass back to the frame. Put a line of clear silicone (which you can get at Home Depot or Lowe's) along the back outside of the frame. Carefully place the glass over it. Put another line of clear silicone around the edge of the frame again, to fill in any gaps that may be between the glass and the frame. Let it dry for 12-24 hrs. Once it is dry, use a razor blade to scrape off any excess silicone. Hang it up and you are finished!

Step 1

Step 2

Remove the staples from the frame that hold the picture/glass in the frame.

Step 3

Stain the frame (optional). I used 3 coats to get the frame as dark as I wanted.
