I "LOVE" Wire words!

 I used 12 gauge aluminum jewelry wire, found at any craft store w/ bead supplies. 1st I wrote out the word I wanted in this case "LOVE". Then I started bending the wire & holding it on the paper to match it to my writing. I did have to pic it up to do the loop-d-loos. Some words will work better then others.
 I also wrote out Paris bellow, which was more challenging to connect & dot the "i". I love how they turned out though & it was SO quick & simple! It took me like 10 mins. to do both words! Very cheep too! I had so much fun, I'm thinking I may start making these to sell! :)
I'm linking up to these parties...

Chrystie, this is so cute, I love this idea! Now post a picture of where you put them :)

Thanks, Sarah! :) I haven't decided where to put them yet. But they are actually skinny enough they could be titles in the scrapbook too! I love that I can use them several places! That's a good idea I'll post pics when I figure out where to put them! :)

These turned out so nice. I've never tried this, but you've made it look so easy--maybe I will! Great blog, BTW.

Warmly, Michelle
