Being the somewhat crafty person that I am, I decided to have fun with my "paper" anniversary gift. I searched the internet for unique "paper" anniversary gifts and ended up copying something that I had seen on my friend Louise's blog a few months ago. She also copied it from this shop on ETSY. But honestly, why spend $400.00 on something that is so easy to do it yourself?!?
So, I went to Target and bought a 14"X18" white frame for about $20.00, got a piece of white matte board and a heart stencil at Michael's Arts and Crafts Store for $6.00, and went to AAA where my Mom is a member to pick up maps from different places around the world. I think I bought 8 maps and the total was $16.00. In total, this entire project cost me less than $50.00. And I guess you can be the judge, but I think it turned out just as awesome as the $400.00 one.

I think he really liked it.
