Sentimental Framed Quote

I was invited to a wedding shower for a very special couple on Saturday. The son of one of my friends is getting married in a couple of weeks, so they had a shower for the bride-to-be. I wanted to give them something sentimental and I knew they are both Christians. I chose a verse from Song of Solomon to use.

I found a pretty font and printed the wording off from the computer. I positioned everything on the back of the glass and taped it down.

The extra fine point Sharpie paint worked perfectly for this project. I got the fine point just in case, but didn't end up using it. 

I carefully removed the glass and flipped it over...

I then traced out the words using my Sharpie. 

Then I removed the paper from the back and let everything dry. 

I just loved how it turned out!

Until it cracked when I was putting it back into the frame. I was literally on the very last part and this happened:

Pure anger and panic set in as soon as I heard it happen! 

I had to start all over again...This time I got it right!

"I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine"
Song of Solomon 6:3

I added their soon to be new name and their wedding date to the bottom. 

I really love how this project turned out. It was super easy to do (except for the putting the glass into the frame thing) and is something that can be treasured for years to come.
