I am so lucky to have you as my daughter Snellen eye chart

By | February 9, 2012

I was browsing through Etsy and I stumbled upon a really cute idea. Somebody used the idea of a Snellen eye chart to display a message. The one that caught my attention said, “I am so lucky to have you as my daughter”.

I thought about ordering it for my daughter so I could give it to her on Valentine’s Day but I worried that I would not receive it in time. That is when Creative Trina (aka me) woke up and decided to try and make it on her own.

I started in Microsoft Word and looked through fonts until I found one that I liked. The font that I picked was “Killian”. I started out the “I” at 100 points and then decreased it in size from top to bottom. Once I got the phrase centered and on the page the way that I liked it I printed it on plain white printer paper. Then I used a 40% off Michaels coupon to buy a pink frame that matches her room and a coordinating mat board. In total this entire project cost me approximately $20 because the frame that I picked was kind of pricey. If I had more time I could have hunted for a cooler looking one from an estate sale and spray painted it a bold color.  To some simple and stylish spray painted picture frame ideas click here, here, and here.

Here is a picture of my inspiration:
