Chi-Town & The Big Apple

   This was a wedding gift for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law.  My brother-in-law is from New York and my sister-in-law is from Chicago.  She moved to New York, they met, they fell in love, they got married…

ImageI went online and googled state outlines for New York and Illinois.  After I sized them in Microsoft Word, I printed them onto card stock.  I used an X-Acto knife to cut them out and then outlined them using a sharpie.  I then glued the states onto a sheet of parchment paper.  I used sage but this comes in a variety of colors.  I added little hearts to the exact place where they lived and then wrote there names on the bottom.  I bought the frame at Michaels.  This project makes a great personalized shower or wedding gift for a couple from different states or even countries.
