Typically my craft projects are completed in the winter - when the days are short and we spend more time indoors. But I just completed a small craft project that went like this:
I stopped at a garage sale on my way to work one recent Friday morning and bought these notecards -cute right?
Each package contained 10 blank notecards and they were $0.10 each. At the time I really just thought I might use them - I do send lots of handwritten notes - something we should all do more of, but I digress...
So, later that same weekend I was cleaning up my work area in the garage. I came across a stack of three unfinished wood plaques that I had picked up at a garage sale several months ago. The second I saw them the project came to me. I have to admit that this doesn't happen to me as often as I wish it did - much of my "creativity" is copied.
I painted each plaque with one coat of Kilz and two coats of black paint. Then I glued the notecard (top half only) to the plaque using Mod Podge. I wiped it all down with wipe-on poly because I wanted it to be shiny. Then I added a ribbon for hanging to each one - the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and I loved that it had a little bling.
So that's it - I hope they will add some fun to a girl's room!
