Framed Lyrics


Bryan got me a Silhouette Portrait for Christmas, and to say that I am extremely excited about this present is an understatement! Is it too soon to begin decorating for Valentine's Day? Either way, I am in love with the Lumineers' song, "Ho Hey" at the moment.


I started with a 5' x 7' frame from IKEA. I took out the matting to allow for extra space.


Using the frame dimensions, I wrote in the lyrics within the Silhouette software.

I cut the paper down to the frame dimensions using a paper cutter. I really liked the negative space the letters created. I originally was going to do something with the cut letters until it was cut. I backed the purple paper with yellow to add contrast.


I'm sure as Valentine's Day approaches, hearts and glitter may be added, but for now I love the simplicity of this craft!
