Phone Book Word Art

A few years ago, I created this project as a gift for my husband. I am so happy with the way it turned out and I think it makes a great Valentine’s Day gift so, I thought I would repost it. Try making some personalized word art using pages from an old phone book…

A page from my old phone book (the page that carries our listing) is used to deliver a message.

I made this as a gift for my husband. My girls were thrilled to discover our listing on the page. Children love to uncover hidden messages and little tricks like this.

To make this – just gently pull your page from the phone book and stamp with a message. Frames and mats can be found inexpensively in a lot of places. I got mine at Blick, but you can also try IKEA, Michael's or Target.

    Another great suggestion! I was just thinking about how weird and a waste it is that they still deliver phone books and you go ahead and come up with a great idea! Your husband must love all of his creative surprises! 🙂
