I was first introduced to this book as an elementary teacher and bought a copy for my mom and firstborn. I read it many times to him and my other two children as well.
I decide the phrases "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always" needed to go a sign for Valentine's Day this year.
I eliminated the I part to simplify it and made it into two printable signs HERE and HERE.
I printed these on canvas paper I bought at Michaels. The paper has a cream side and a whiter side and I opted to print on the white side. I trimmed the 9"x12" paper to 8 1/2"x11" to fit in my printer.
I cut an old board I had to 24" long--it is about 10 1/2" wide. Because it was splitting, I added a few thin boards to the back to keep it together (boy, there are days I wish I could add a few thin boards to myself to keep it together!). I sanded it lightly and used Minwax polyacrylic on it to give it a nicer finish.
I measured 15 mm in on each corner of the canvas prints and marked it.
I punched the corners with a small sized hole punch.
I hammered antique bronze upholstery tacks (from Lowes) into the holes on the corners.
That is all! The canvas paper has a nice, durable finish that can be dusted if needed.
For now this is hanging on a door to my entry in my great room.
I like the simple look of it so much, that I think after Valentine's Day I will find a spot for it in our master bedroom.
