Illuminated 3D Paper I Love U Sign | SVGCuts

I just realized that two years ago today was my first blog post EVER! Hard to believe how far I've come... for someone technically challenged it makes me excited about all that I have learned and done these last few years! Yay me!!! Anyways, enough about me lets get to the post ;)

I'm really excited to share with you my latest SVGCuts DT creation! Inspired by the recent marquee craze, I thought I would try my hand at creating a Valentine "I Love U" sign! This project makes a great Valentine decor piece or a unique gift idea!

I love it when something I had envisioned actually turned out as I planned. It was actually quite easy and quick to put together too :)

Here is what it looks like when the room lights are turned off, and the LED lights are turned on.
 Love how it looks in the dark. Ooooo, Aaahhhh!

To create this look, I used a battery-operated string of LED lights and added a hole to the back panel, and strung them through! Clever right?! The coolest part is that this battery pack has a built-in timer that turns on every 24 hours and stays lit for 6 hours! I don't even have to touch it!!! A pleasant bonus as I found them at the dollar store...  Amazeballs, right?!

If you want to, the battery pack could easily be attached to the back and then the sign could be hung on the wall!
