Scrabble Board Valentine's Day Card

Valentine's Day is finally here. And I can't help it but I just couldn't make a regular Valentine's Day card for my boyfriend. I knew that I wanted to do something unique and finally decided to upcycle a Scrabble board since it folded like a giant card and I could use the tiles to spell out my sentiment.

I cut lots of little rectangles from various pink shades of Basic Grey papers. I needed a light, medium and dark selection for the heart pattern to work. I adhered them with Mod Podge which worked well but I decided that it was best not to fold the board after the Mod Podge dried to avoid cracking.
Happy Valentine's Day!
